Plant Description

This true Italian heirloom is beloved in the Chicago area. It was brought to the US in the early 1900s and has thrived in backyard gardens ever since. ‘Melrose’ is a superb, thin-skinned frying Pepper—pick it when it’s vivid red for super sweet, deep rich flavor that won’t overpower a dish.
