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.

good germination

All the seeds germinated, but the plant did not do anything untill mid-summer, and it kept getting attacked by aphids early in the season. To me it's not worth the hassel of growing peppers that are pretty basic.

100% germination

The Bulgarian carrott pepper seeds had 100% germination. The fish pepper seeds had 80%. Overall very satisfied.

Nothing like a carrot

100% germination with heat mat 75 degrees F, humidity dome and light on a 16/8 cycle. About a foot tall right now and monstrous. These plants could really hold some fruit if it were time. Nothing like the piddly germination rates of carrots.
