CORNITO PEPPERS OVERVIEW

These yellow mini-bell peppers will provide a colorful and nutritious addition to salads, stir-fries, pastas, or can even be eaten simply as a snack while tending to your farm. Bred from larger italian frying peppers, these "little horns" provide robust flavor in a small package. Roasted, peppers bring a silky, sweet element to dips, spreads, sandwiches, and more - this variety is especially sweet and is an abundant producer.

GROWING AND HARVESTING TIPS

The more you harvest, the more they will grow - remember to pick peppers to spur continuous growth. Pepper plants will stand up to vigorous pruning - they'll grow tall unless the tops of the branches are clipped when the plant reaches a height of around 15". Peppers will ripen into a bright yellow, but they can be harvested when still green for a different, more herbal flavor.
