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.

These took awhile before they began to produce but once they did WOW! I had pounds and pounds of fruit from just three plants. I made a hot sauce from the peppers that has gotten rave reviews!

What are the pros? Beautiful Plant

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew this plant to give to my mom, who lives in OKC, for Mother's Day in 2016. I started several and gave the best looking to her. Good germination. My mom planted it in her flowerbed right in front of her house, facing west. I was a little nervous that the OK afternoon sun would be a bit much for it but such was not the case! Plant grew and was bushy and beautiful! Tons of peppers! She loved the variegation, both on the leaves and peppers. Because of the lighter leaves, you could see the peppers all the way to the street when they turned red! It made a great conversation piece when she had people over. She tried one and said it was too spicy for her, but, based on the other reviews here, I think maybe she should have tried another. I live in central TX and grew most of my peppers (5 dif kinds) in 5-gal buckets. It is Jan and this pepper, while a great looking plant, has still not bloomed for me. I suspect it is me, though, as my other types were slow as well. Spring will tell!

What are the pros? Interesting foliage, yield

What are the cons? none

Review:

Ended up planting these in my flower bed rather than with the other veggies. The foliage is unique and many of the peppers showed cream striations when green, turning to a solid red at maturity. I used them fresh (thin skinned) and also dried. They took longer to dry than the Thai types, but were hotter and of nice flavor. They were the first of the peppers I grew to produce. Will do these again.

What are the pros? Great for Hot sauce

What are the cons? Super soft when red

Review:

I discovered how amazing this pepper is to make hot sauce. It is sweet with the right heat! Nice when green and striped. Oops, did not check them for a few days and there were a lot of red ones. Very easy to grow. Could use support, plants were very prolific!

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.
