Wow! Spicy Stuff - Chili peppers, tomatoes and herbs 6.11.2015

This year's roll of stamps features chili peppers, tomatoes and herbs, which were selected as Vegetable of the Year between 2012 and 2014. The roll of stamps, illustrated by Ossi Hiekkala, brings the three-part series Products of the Gardento an end. The previous stamps in the series depicted fruit and berries. The graphic design of the stamps is done by Heikki Sallinen. The box of rolls of stamps contains a hundred first-class stamps.

The chili peppers depicted on the stamps include the orange Habanero, Heatwave, Joe's Long, Jamaican Bell, Jalastar and Summer Heat. The tomatoes on the stamps include beefsteak tomato, cherry tomato and organic tomato. Herbs are represented by basil, salvia and cilantro.

Thank you very much Ella.
