Pepper Mama Mia

This pepper has deep roots in both Chicago and Italy. In 1903 an Italian family brought seeds from their favorite sweet pepper to plant in their new garden. Soon it was shared with neighbors and became a favorite and a staple in the community it was named after. The bright red, sweet, 4-6" long, thin skinned peppers can be enjoyed red or green. The flavor is very similar to a sweet green pepper and are great cooked, dried, grilled, fried, or stuffed with sausage.
