I got these seeds in an internet trade from Serbia. They are pretty to look at and tasty too. The peppers are held upright on the plants and grow to about 2 inches long.They are black when inmature and will remain black.
A few peppers will be a bright lipstick red on each plant. Maybe 3 or 4 .They will remain red. They are thin skinned and dry easily. I have Asian friends who like the taste in their traditonal dishes.
