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? the deer hate them

What are the cons? none

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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, high yield

What are the cons? Not a damn thing

Review:

This is the coolest plant! I love how the peppers turn a multitude of colors. The yield is INCREDIBLE. And, I have to say, I was overwhelmed by how well the seeds sprouted. Usually you have a certain percentage of seeds that just don't take. I swear, probably 98% of the seeds I planted grew. It was awesome. I gave a ton away and grew a bunch myself. The yield has been amazing. It's almost mid-October now and I'm still harvesting peppers! And they're super tasty and pack a nice punch. I'm saving seeds but, if they don't sprout, I'll definitely buy these again.

What are the pros? Super easy to grow

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This plant is perfect. It is so easy to grow, give it sun and water and it will do its thing. The foliage is beautiful and the peppers are gorgeous. They might be small, but the flavour is great! The peppers are hot, but not too much, and have a nice fruity taste. They make a nice addition to salsas and sauces, raw or cooked. You can purchase them at the Concordia university sale in spring if you live near Montreal.

What are the pros? Colorful, hardy

What are the cons? Very spicy!

Review:

I'm so happy we planted this pepper plant. We had a cool, wet summer, and this is the only pepper plant that thrived and produced anything. These little hot peppers turn from purple, to white/tan, to yellow, orange, and then red. We made pico-de-gallo with them this summer, and I plan to freeze the rest for Chili. They are VERY SPICY!! Hotter than jalepanos or chili peppers. One little pepper will go a long way.

What are the pros? Very prolific, lovely plants

What are the cons? picking can break small limbs

Review:

These peppers are beautiful! Purplish tint on the leaves is very distinctive, and the peppers, though not very large (some are actually tiny), go from a deep purple to white, then cream, then yellow, then orange, then red - they look almost like a decorated Christmas tree! The plant are very prolific, and Hubby reports they're plenty hot at the purple stage, and get hotter as they change colors. He loves them! I intend to keep a couple that I have in pots in my greenhouse and have them for him all winter long. :-) My only fault with them is that the smaller limbs that grow off the larger ones are rather fragile, and you have to be careful when picking the peppers off the tiny limbs, or you'll get the limb and whatever flowers & immature fruits were on it as well as the pepper you were after. I suggest using nippers or scissors to harvest these peppers.
