Rumor is that the Bulgarian Carrot Pepper was smuggled out of Russia during the late 1980s, and made its way through Europe, the Caribbean, and then the United States! Also known as “Shipkas” or “Hot Carrot,” these peppers are great for salsas, roasting, stir fry, and grilling. The Bulgarian Carrot has a crunchy texture with a sweet yet tangy flavor, and they produce a burst of heat. They have a resemblance to the bright orange carrot, with its pointy shape and fluorescent orange skin. The fruity pepper grows to three to four inches tall, with the plant growing to about two feet. They ripen from green to yellow, and then finally orange. This plant does well in cooler climates.
