Fushimi Sweet Long Pepper
Capsicum annuum 'Fushimi Sweet Long'
When to Sow:
Ease of Germination:
It looks like a cayenne pepper -- tapered, thin and long -- but with none of the heat. And that’s part of the magic. The peppers are so tender and mild, you can eat them right off the plant. Sweet and fruity, with a hint of edamame, even as the green fruits develop and ripen to a bright red, they are absolutely delicious at any stage. The flavour holds up well whether roasted, fried, grilled or pickled. A fun Japanese finger food is to blister them in oil and season with sea salt. Or once blistered, you can chop and sprinkle on sushi, omelettes, stir-fries or salads. This pepper is one of 21 traditional
vegetables recognized by Kyoto Prefecture in Japan as healthy traditional food choices that are high in vitamins, minerals and fibre. Easy to grow and very productive. 70-80 days.
