General Information: Corno pepper ripens from green to red, with outstanding crisp texture, rich flavor and more sweetness than large-fruited peppers. The corno-shaped fruit are often seedless, which means less preparation time for chopping and cooking. Great on the grill or baked stuffed with cheese.

Grower Information:

  • Corno-shaped pepper has outstanding crisp texture, rich flavour and more sweetness than large-fruited peppers.
  • Fruit is often seedless, which means less preparation time for chopping and cooking; great on the grill or baked stuffed with cheese.  
  • To produce seedless fruit, grow it in isolation from other (non-seedless) pepper varieties.
  • If it is not isolated, it will produce larger, great-tasting fruit with just a few seeds.
  • Best grown in-ground with support of stakes or a cage.
