The Corno di Toro Red Pepper is an Italian heirloom that's popular with our customers and is identical to the Corno di Toro Yellow Pepper!

This pepper plant grows between 3 to 4 feet tall and produces large, narrow, tapered peppers with a bull-horn curve. These pods grow around 8" long and 2" wide, and ripen from glossy green to a bright red.

The Corno di Toro Pepper is commonly called the Bull’s Horn pepper or Cowhorn pepper because of its bull horn shape and translates to “Horn of the Bull.” But don’t let the pepper scare you, as its sweet and spicy flavor makes this versatile and great for eating raw, stuffed, grilled, or fried! If you fry them, be sure to fry them in olive oil and sprinkle them with parmesan. You could also let them be ornamental pepper plants with their bright red crop!

Corno di Toro Red Pepper Seeds

Jack Surface

The seeds were in excellent condition and have been planted in my seed starting mix, on the heat mat at 81 degrees F and under the grow lights. Just being Patient for those first germinations.

Still young

Had a great experience with this site buying seeds. The plants have spouted and are currently growing. Still too early to bare fruit but I have no doubts they will be anything but delicious
