What are the pros? Fairly easy to grow
What are the cons? Slow to start blooming
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.

What are the pros? Flavor, color, prolific
What are the cons? none
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.
What are the pros? flavorful
What are the cons? few recipes for them
We had a long dry/hot spell here this summer (8 weeks, no rain and temps 90-105), and these peppers handled it the best. The Arroz Con Pollo plants were the last of the peppers to droop, and it's abundant leaves and general bushiness shaded its fruits so they did not get sun-scorched like the other varieties. I will plant them at least 2 and probably 3 feet apart next year. I think the word "floral" describes the flavor well.

What are the pros? Flavor
This peppers unique flavor is totally different than your typical habanero. Infact I can't even come up with anything that taste similar to it. All I know is that its delicious with no heat and has a perfumed aroma. To me ,it seems that this pepper has more flavor when green.I've been using this in chill ,gumbo, enchiladas, and purple hull peas. This is now now my secret weapon when cooking. The plants will get close to 4 feet tall and is a little slow to set fruit , but when it does produce , expect a freezer bag per plant. It is also useful to start indoors early(mid or late march) with heat pad and a grow light.

What are the pros? Unique flavor
What are the cons? Took forever to produce
I tried this pepper on a whim. We like them spicy, but I was intrigued by the description. Especially since my son loves beans and rice. We started them indoors and then moved the plants outside into large pots (storage tubs converted into pots) on our patio. The plants grew tall and strong. I did stake them just to be sure. It felt like ages before I saw the first flower. We had an unusually short season (snow after Mother's Day!) so I feel like I didn't get nearly enough peppers out of my two plants. Once they did flower, though, they produced lots of small, cheery peppers. The flavor is definitely unique. If simply eaten raw/sauteed, it's like eating a flower/perfume. Not for everyone. I thought it was spectacular because it was so different. And I think it definitely added something to my beans. I can see why this is a pepper used for flavoring, though. My husband hated the flower/perfume taste. I would grow it again if not for my husband's dislike and our limited garden space.
