Goccia d'Oro (Drop of Gold) is an open pollinated heirloom frying pepper that despite its size has delicate, thin walls that melt into a sweet mouthful. Its skin is also thin so you needn't peel them. Cut-and-fry or simply apply a light coating of oil and grill. Italian frying peppers have a delicate taste that thick-walled American Bells lack.
Goccia d'Oro is a very productive plant which yeilds early peppers best picked as they turn yellow. In my garden they've required staking to prevent them from toppling over with an abundance of big peppers. That's the sort of extra work that a gardener finds appealing.
These Goccia d'Oro were organically grown in my garden in the Valley of the Moon.
