80 days. An African-American heirloom popular in the Philadelphia/Baltimore region. A pre-1947 variety that was used in fish and shellfish cookery. The color of the fruit range from green, orange, brown, white and red, being spicy and hot. What really makes this pepper stand out is its wonderful foliage, as the 2-feet tall plants have stunning white and green mottled leaves, which makes this variety superb for ornamental and edible landscaping.

What are the pros? Hot but flavorful

What are the cons? Birds love them

Review:

Now that they are finally starting to mature red (these are among 6 of the 7 varieties of peppers I planted this year that were eaten down to stalks after transplanting) so I'm giving them the benefit of doubt and saying they had a late start thanks to focusing on re growing vs producing. Now that they are turning red the birds are loving them but!!! Wow!!!!! Awesome little hot pepper. It is pretty darn hot but not so hot it kills your taste buds and can't enjoy it. This hot pepper has flavor aside from spice. I have two plants going right now and they are loaded! And the fact that the plant itself is pretty with the white parti colored leaves, and gorgeous striped fruit. It's as fun to watch the stripped fruit change colors as it is to cook with and eat them. 100% growing again.

Review:

I grew these this year in containers (and a few in the ground.). This is a superb pepper. I used them for many various purposes but my favorite was with fish. Saut?ed in butter then poured over fish meuni?re creates something amazing--the flavor is unique and subtle. No wonder this pepper became associated with fish dishes, hence the name. I dehydrated the red ones to make pepper flakes. In my opinion these are too hot for that purpose--you can't substitute them for recipes that call for red pepper flakes--but would be great to add spice to dishes that call for it like Cajun food and chili. The pepper was easy to grow and was a heavy producer all season. They were also pretty plants but I think it would be a stretch to call them a landscaping plant. I will definitely continue growing these.

Review:

I'm not a hot pepper person but certain dishes call for them. I figured these were a good compromise between totally hot and sweet. They're pretty hot but there's lots to do with them. Made a candied jalapeno (using fish peppers) relish which people who love hot ...love. Pretty in the garden and they don't need a fence because even the deer don't want them. Great little pepper.

Review:

We had ONE plant this summer for the two of us, and were drowning in peppers! The plant is beautiful with many white speckled leaves, and even many of the peppers are striped before they turn red. I started this plant indoors in Feb/March and planted out in late April. We are still getting a bumper crop of peppers mid-Sept. They are great fresh, but also dry well for storage. We had a bit of a Harlequin beetle problem late in the season, and while they loved hanging out on my other pepper plants (and kale, and Brussels sprouts...), they pretty much left the fish pepper alone. Highly recommended.
