Elephant’s Ear Chili Pepper
Also known as Slonovo Uvo. The Elephant’s Ears is a rare large sweet Paprika type from Croatia.

In Croatia, this pepper is typically roasted, stuffed, and used for sauces and a variety of condiments. In Croatia and Serbia, it is very popular for Ajvar, a famous chili pepper preserve. The plant produces peppers over 6 inches in length and over 4 inches wide. The fruits ripen from green to red. The Elephant Ears chile plants can grow up to 3 feet tall.
