What are the pros? FLAVOR, heat, perennial, cute
What are the cons? longer than average to harvest
The plant is attractive. It has an unusual leaf for a pepper with larger, rounded leaves. The crazy wrinkles and textured skin make this pepper unmistakable in the garden. Very pretty. Can be kept as a perennial in warmer climates.
It didn't fruit for me the first year because of a late start. These peppers take a bit longer to grow than other peppers. (Start 10-12 weeks before last frost.) I dug it up and brought it inside for winter (zone 6) and now I finally can harvest them. I just ate the first fruit of this 2nd year plant in mid-August. WOW! It was definitely worth the wait! I have never had a pepper that tastes like this before. It has a citrus flavor with a good amount of heat that is a bit spicier than a habanero. This pepper is downright DELICIOUS! I cannot repeat it enough! WOW!
