What are the pros? great flavor, very prolific
What are the cons? not the easiest to grow
I grew these for 2 years. The first year, something went very wrong with the hardening and I lost them all. I was crushed.
Second year i let them get bigger, at least 8 inches tall, before I started to harden them. It took a good deal of water to get them going in Idaho. I supplemented the irrigation for the first month or so (the garden was irrigated with about 4 inches of water once a week; I added about a quart per plant mid week). Once they got going they produced til the plants froze. The kids all loved them raw as well as cured in oil. The flavor is stronger than a green pepper but not hot at all.
