The Corno di Toro Pepper is called the Bull’s Horn pepper or Cowhorn pepper because of its bull horn shape and is translated as the “Horn of the Bull.” But don’t let the pepper scare you, as it is versatile and great for eating raw, stuffed, grilled or fried!

These large, narrow, tapered peppers with a bull horn curve ripen from glossy green to red and grow to over 8 inches and over 2 inches wide. The Corno di Toro Pepper Plant grows between 3 to 4 feet tall.
