Despite its name there is some confusion as to the origin of 'Bulgarian Carrot', with many believing it originates from Hungary, where it is known as 'Shipkas'.

The flesh is extremely thick and crunchy, making this Chilli perfect for using raw in salads or salsas or made into sauces or chutneys. The combination of crunch, thick flesh, bright colour, mild heat and great flavour makes this, in our opinion, one of the best Chillies for topping pizza! It also has the benefit of being one of the earlier varieties to produce full ripened fruit (mid / late July).

Despite the overall size of the plant, yield is always very heavy, even performing well outside and in colder years (thanks to its Bulgarian/Hungarian origins). This is an excellent variety for the novice Chilli grower and a variety we highly recommend all round.

The bright orange-red fruits are 3"-4" (7.5-10 cm) long, but surprisingly stocky at around" (2 cm) wide. This is not the largest of growing varieties and rarely grows taller than 30" (75 cm) with a fairly upright habit.

  • Origin: Bulgari /Hungary
