This Italian sweet pepper produces heavy yields of wide-shouldered fruit that taper to a smooth point, and matures a week earlier than other varieties of this type. The sturdy plants grow 28" tall and offer good protection to the fruit which measure 7" long x 2" at the crown. Carmen pepper matures from green to a brilliant red and has a sweet flavor when at full maturity.
