Tips and curiosities of the tomolo

Only true Neapolitans know how to recognise the authentic curly papaccella at a glance, as the markets are now invaded by hybrid peppers that are almost identical to the papaccella of the past.

The territory of Vesuvius, thanks to its clayey and compact nature, favours the cultivation and, over time, the tradition of processing the papaccella, cooked in vinegar or grilled in oil, has spread so that it is available in the pantry all year round.

The curly papaccella, which was on the verge of extinction, was rescued by the guardian farmers of the Vesuvius area and has become a Slow Food Presidium, a symbol of agriculture and resistance, an emblem of the stubbornness, tenacity and resilience typical of this land.
