A sure winner from our breeding in Central America, where peppers are plentiful and varied, 'Costa Rican Sweet' is a gem. A truly tasty pepper, it's a large Marconi type but shorter in length and wider through the shoulder. Pick when the skin turns deep ruby red to experience its unique fruity sweetness. We like it in salads and sliced in strips for dip, as it provides more flavor than a sweet bell. Also tasty when roasted or grilled. Matures when about 6" long.
