What are the pros? tolerates heat/shade
What are the cons? Aphids; white flies
These peppers were bigger than the picture led me to believe, which was nice. I got one that was maybe six inches long. They started green, and went from green to brown (no red or pink in between that I saw). The brown ones are kind of red inside, though.
The taste was a lot like a bell pepper, sometimes with a slight cherry-type flavor. I've only tasted them brown, though (since I've been letting every last pepper ripen for seed, so far; I think I have enough, though, especially since pepper seeds aren't said to keep as long as tomato seeds).
My plants were all grown in partial shade. So, these are at least partially shade-tolerant.
They set fruit in really hot, dry temperatures, whereas Ozark Giant and Yellow Monster did not. It was well into the 100's when these were first setting fruit. It got hot early, this year.
They got aphids after a while, but after fertilizing with calcium nitrate, and perhaps a temperature change, ladybugs came and ate them all, or something.
