What are the pros? Nice small fruit
What are the cons? Might be too hot
It's my first time growing this pepper and I wasn't expecting it to be quite this hot. I just picked a pepper that had turned orange, sliced it in two and put a sliver of it into my mouth. Yikes! Got that immediate burning sensation of a super hot pepper. I didn't even bite into it. Definitely didn't get a "smoky" flavor. However, I'm not going to give up yet. I'll try roasting some and using them in some recipes. The plant is attractive and yields quite a few peppers, so that's a plus. I grow quite a few peppers in a greenhouse because Salem usually doesn't have a very hot growing season, and I like both sweet and hot peppers. So the jury is still out on this pepper for flavor and heat, but I have enjoyed growing it. It's a healthy plant, and I haven't had any major pest problems.
