AMMAZZO (PI 592836)

Species: Annuum | Origin: Italy | Heat: Medium

This a small Italian cherry variety where 'Ammazzo' translates as 'small bunch of flowers'. This very unusual, 3ft tall, ornamental pepper bears clusters of 8 to 15 individual fruits which measure 1/2" high x 3/4" wide and resemble small red marbles in a green bowl. The peppers mature from dark green to red (75-90 days) and although they are edible, the plant is best used as an ornamental. This white flowering variety is also known as 'Nosegay' or 'Joes Round'.
