Rezha Macedonian hot peppers grown by Rosey Guest of Jefferson, Maine

Rezha Macedonian hot peppers grown by Rosey Guest of Jefferson, Maine

September 26, 2019

This Rezha Macedonian hot pepper grown by Rosey Guest of Jefferson, Maine, was one of the unusual entries in the Exhibition Hall at MOFGA’s Common Ground Country Fair last weekend. ‘Rezha’ translates as ‘engraved’ and refers to the lines on the skin. Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds says the fruits “range from mild to sometimes very pungent” and “are to be seen hanging in great clusters, drying in Macedonian warm late autumn sun.” Guest won a blue ribbon (first place) and a gift certificate to a Maine seed company for her entry. What will you enter next year? Information about the Exhibition Hall is posted here.
