Plants of this variety are, indeed, quite compact - in my greenhouse they grew up to 45 cm. On each bush, not 20 fruits were set, as promised by the manufacturer, but from 8 to 10. They were rather large in size, weighing up to 200 grams. ... Despite the fact that the Pride of Russia is an early ripening variety, my peppers began to turn red only at the end of August. The pepper tastes sweet and juicy, with dense fleshy pulp.
Evgeniya, 31 years old, Astrakhan
This variety did not work for me. Of all the seeds, I got only one plant and that was frail. In the greenhouse, of course, it got stronger, but it did not bear fruit very well. Maybe I'm just not so lucky.
