What are the pros? Lovely color. Decorative
What are the cons? Horrible for drying
I transplanted dozens of these peppers for the first time in 2017. The plants are small, decorative and the branches barely support the delicate purple peppers. PROS: The peppers are lovely & eye-catching. CONS: Turns the ugliest brown color when dried. I used an Excalibur Dehydrator at a very low heat setting (that always preserves the color of other peppers) but had extremely poor results. These peppers dry to a truly unappetizing brown vomit color. SO disappointed. I gave a huge amount of space in my garden to these plants. Big mistake. All the peppers I dried are going into the compost. I am NOT writing this review just to complain but to save others from such disappointment. Try a couple of plants to see if you like them. I recommend these for fresh use only. I will not grow these ever again.
