Mad Hatter is a flat disc pepper that is crunchy and crisp. Its not unalike our previous Habanera Flyer that we used to supply - looks a bit like a spaceship.
This very popular all purpose sweet pepper is easy to grow and is right up there with great yields.
It has a delicate floral scent and rich flavour that intensifies/sweetens as it matures. The plant habit is extra large and vigorous. In hot, dry climates a small number of fruit will have a touch of heat close to the seed cavity, but the fruit wings are always sweet.
Its a bit like a lucky dip or should we say Russian Roulette... you get accustomed to the sweet flavour and then whamo you get a hot one! Its unique shape makes an intriguing addition to the table. Try stuffing them with cream cheese, suffused in olive oil... yum!
