What are the pros? flavor

What are the cons? germination, hard to grow

Review:

Similar to what other folks said, the flavor is incredible and one little pepper does provide flavor for the entire dish. It has a wonderful habanero flavor but without the heat. Even when you are just chopping it up the smell makes you mouth water. That being said it was incredibly slooooooow to germinate. I didn't use a heat mat though so I will try that this year. The first year none germinate, last year two germinated and I was able to plant. One plant has not produced a single pepper. The other plant has provided 2 peppers (it's August and I planted in June). Perhaps it's just not hot enough in our zone (6a). I do wish it would grow though because the flavor is incredible!

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? very slow to bloom

Review:

Started indoors under high-powered grow lights in an east-facing window. Slow to germinate, but good germination. Hardened off the best of the best, then planted in large planter, at first located in greenhouse, then moved outdoors when weather got hot. Grew well, but never bloomed, no peppers. Perhaps my growing season here in Montana just wasn't long enough, although I'm in a "banana belt" of zone 6. My other peppers did pretty well. Can't recommend for my climate. Reviewers located in the South seemed to do well.

What are the pros? Extremely productive.

What are the cons? Late to mature.

Review:

This is my favorite seasoning pepper hands down. It has all of the wonderful flavor of a habanero, but without the heat. I love the taste of habs, but you can only cook or serve so many of them. The plants are huge and very productive, but were late to fully ripen for me. Next year, I will overwinter a few plants in the basement and hope for earlier fruit. I dried and ground these to add as seasoning and it's phenomenal. I can't imagine not growing these for the rest of my gardening life.

What are the pros? Fairly easy to grow

What are the cons? Slow to start blooming

Review:

Plant looks like a habanero plant, peppers look like habaneros. They have a great flavor similar to habaneros but very little heat and none if you take out the seeds. Very pleased with them.

Favorite Pepper of the season

What are the pros? Flavor, color, prolific

What are the cons? none

Review:

My favorite pepper this season. Prolific. Nice spiciness and flavor without any heat. Shiny and pretty when orange, but better flavor if you let them ripen to a deep red. In Middle Tennessee we were able to get 2 harvests and a few stragglers. They withstood 3 weeks of daily rain and temps in the 90*F without any rotting. Best germination of all the sweet and hot peppers that I grew.
