Fruit characteristics: It has a conical shape, is 3 to 7-8 cm long, and has thick and firm flesh. After ripening it can take on a color ranging from dark green to bright red; it has several cracks in the skin.
Pepper Maremma recommends it: Chili pepper with very low spiciness, ideal for those who are new to spicy or those with very low capsaicin tolerance. Intense and sharp flavor that can give the dish a very special taste. Recommended on bean dishes, on boiled vegetables and light cheeses.
