What are the pros? Fantastic flavor and aroma.
What are the cons? Very slow to germinate.
I first experienced these peppers in Cuba and became obsessed with finding them here. I love the distinctive flavor and aroma of habaneros, but their heat really limits how I can use them. The Arroz con Pollo peppers have the exact flavor and aroma profile as a habanero but are completely free of the heat! I use them all the time! They were slower than all of my other plants (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants) to germinate. Since they were the plants I was the most excited about, Murphy's Law would suggest that they would be the seeds that wouldn't grow. Fortunately, I learned that slower germination is a characteristic of the smaller, and typically hotter, pepper varieties. Most of the seeds eventually sprouted in their own sweet time, but I will consider giving them a two week head start over my other seeds next year. It is my prediction (and hope) that these peppers will become a hot commodity in farmers markets in the coming years.
