ripen red. Jan Antohi was a touring acrobat when

he defected to the United States. In late 1991, he

more than 8 years, and came back with seeds of

this delicious heirloom. Romanians fry these in a

hot skillet to experience the sweet, full flavor.

Lipstick Pepper (Capsicum annuum):

Sweet, cone-shaped peppers. Sweet, juicy, and thick fleshed,

these 4″ long, heart-shaped peppers are

great for roasting. Dependably productive even in

areas with cooler summers.

staple of many pasta dishes.

Italian Oregano (Origanum vulgare):

Wonderfully aromatic and flavorful herb.
