What are the pros? Very prolific, lovely plants
What are the cons? picking can break small limbs
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.
