Goccia d'Oro is an Italian heritage pepperoni and means "the golden drop". The fruits ripen from light green to light yellow. They then get an orange-red color and can grow to about 4 x 15 cm.
Traditionally, they are harvested when they are yellow, when the flavor is most intense, but they also taste good in the red-orange state. The taste is sweet fruity with a thin skin. They are ideal for filling, baking or grilling.
The plants can grow to about 1 meter high and are fertile. This pepper can be used in almost any dish. It enhances the taste of, for example, meat, and gives a spicy taste to soup and puree.
