Capsicum: Round of Hungary
Name: Round Of Hungary
This is a very tender and juicy capsicum with a great flavour. Unlike other capsicums, these are not good eaten green. The flat fruit make them perfect for stuffing.
Round of Hungary is my favourite capsicum, not only because of its flavour but because it is so damn productive. It often seems that there is more fruit than plant.
