Screaming hot little peppers turn a rainbow of vibrant colors; from purple, cream, yellow, orange to red as they ripen. Need I say ornamental? The plants are great for containers inside. Just pick a few any time to liven up your salsa.

What are the pros? Ornamental-Productive

What are the cons? Bunnies like baby plants

Review:

These things are amazing! I planted 12 in grow boxes and 5 in the garden, the 5 in the garden got eaten (along with my other pepper plants) before the peppers ever came, the 12 in the grow box grew hundreds of beautiful peppers. These peppers can be used sparingly in recipes to give a long, pleasant heat and great pepper taste. They sprout up quickly, bear fruit quickly, and produce up until the cold weather comes. I plan to bring some inside to overwinter and keep the supply going. One pepper goes a long way and they dry well too. Everything about these plants has been wonderful, I plan to try to save as many seeds as I can and distribute locally. These would also make beautiful bonsai pepper plants. If you like hot peppers try these out, and even if you don't these are a thing of beauty and can be processed to make deer/rabbit deterrent (blended in water and sprayed on plants) or capsaicin cream.

What are the pros? excellent all around hot peppe

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are beautiful and pack some heat. We did ours in containers direct sown and have 4 plants that produce more than enough. Weve made hoho with them and these little boogers pack some kick. I highly recomend for anyone to grow these. not only are they stunning to look at but they are excellent pickled, added to a TON of different dishes as well. Not the easiest to start much like any pepper but worth it in the end.

What are the pros? Easy, Pretty, Tasty

What are the cons? None!

Review:

The perfect balance between looks and taste -- although "balance" might be the wrong word. There is no trade off in either category: this plant has tons of both. I grew it in containers and it, by far, was my most prolific pepper last year. It looked beautiful, especially when covered with peppers (which it was from early in the season right up until frost). Watch out, though, the peppers are hot! Not habanero hot. But definitely hot. I froze mine fresh for winter use and am still enjoying them.

What are the pros? compact, great flavor and heat

What are the cons? None

Review:

Oh yeah, this one is a keeper. I absolutely love peppers of all shapes, sizes, and spices but these little guys are a real treat. Abundant doesn't quite describe this plant. I grew 3 plants this year, just to try them, and they provided me with over 300 peppers. That's over 100 peppers per plant! The seeds were easy to start and were the fastest growing variety out of 8 that I planted. Needless to say, they earned their spot in the garden (a much bigger spot next year). Amazing flavor accompanied by quite a bite (which seemed to taper off just a little as the pepper matured to purple, but still quite hot) so it's not for those who are afraid of the heat. Aside from culinary use, this is a visually appealing plant and is absolutely gorgeous when adorned with mature peppers. Compact, easy to maintain, deliciously spicy, and a beautiful ornamental: all good reasons to add this pepper to your garden.

What are the pros? the deer hate them

Review:

I agree with all of the glowing reviews concerning this plant. It produced an amazing amount of peppers, even with the odd weather we had in Ohio this year -- all of my other types of peppers (bought as plants at a big box nursery) failed miserably, with the exception of the cayenne peppers, whose seeds also came from this site. I absolutely recommend this plant to people who have limited space to use for gardening. Thanks for the suggestion of using the purple ones for omelets! I tried that with a red one, and it was WAY too hot for breakfast, so purple it will be from now on. Incidentally, for those of you plagued by deer, they won't touch this plant! But it seems to be a good idea to harvest all the peppers before Halloween, because young kids just might think that those attractive peppers look like candy, and might try to snitch and eat one.
