Troyka Pepper from Andrey
 
Hi,

Received seeds in a trade from Andrey two years back. The sweet pepper is called Troyka.

This pepper plant is very hardy and grows well, with a thick main stem and side branches. Plants loaded up with long conical peppers around 6"-8" long and 2" wide at the top. All are very uniform and start out green, then go yellow, then red-yellow. Best eaten when yellow!

Plants still pumping out peppers, even in September!
Great plant and peppers...

Randy

I just noticed that I saved a lot of Troyka seed from last summer. I must have liked it.

:)) Don't you love going through seeds and finding those surprises? Troyka is a new name to me, I'll have to look it up.

Oh yes, Troyka is a very good one! I had it 2 years ago, seeds from Andrey. It will be back next year; this year there are too many new-to-me varieties to try...

Yes, Troyka is a hardy masterpiece from our Belarusian Institute of Vegetable Gardening since 1994.
I've been sending hundreds of seeds worldwide, but it is still quite rare to hear about this variety abroad:)

The second one is Alesya which is also from the same our Institute since 2003. The same great producer with a perfect hardiness.

Of the two, Andrey, which has the shortest DTM? I'm assuming that it would be Troyka; most of the peppers that are yellow immature really struggle to ripen here.
