Add to my growing list

Also known as 'Shipkas' this charming heirloom was supposedly smuggled out through the iron curtain 20 years ago. This attractive white flowering 2ft plant produces good yields of 3 to 3.5 inches long by 0.625 to 0.75 inches wide glossing orange coloured peppers resembling carrots. The peppers are hot and mature from green to yellow and then to orange approximately 65-70 days after transplanting. The peppers are crunchy and are used to make pickles, salsa, jellies and marinades.
