“Giant Sweet Devil’s Horn” is now my favorite sweet pepper, due to its large size, sweet and “Juicy-Fruit” fruity flavor, and prolific bearing on a strong plant. It also does not festoon its fruits with horrid spots of anthracnose, as many of my sweet peppers do in wet weather.
I first grew this pepper in 2015, and I wrote about it in the Doc and Katie’s Garden Xanadu gardening forum. Let me paste my report here:
“When I bought these seeds, the advertisement was “Giant Sweet Devil’s Horn.” Looked interesting. Big, orange, and said to be sweet. Okay, I’ll bite. I can’t find anything on this name though, so it may be something completely made up by the vendor. I have since seen it advertised by the same vendor on AliExpress, as “diablo cuerno súper gigante Behemoth pimienta dulce semillas frescas.” Well who can pass up a super gigante behemoth? Certainly not me! But more importantly, my fruits are looking exactly like the ones the vendor pictured, and the taste is excellent, fruity and sweet. Therefore, I am happy. The plant has 7 very large fruits on it right now, in the first bearing. None had BER. You all know my reputation for miniaturizing vegetables…well I can only guess how big this thing might grow for those of you who grow nice large veges.”
Since then, others in our forum have grown it and enjoyed the same yummy, productive results. I have not seen a negative review on this variety yet.
