Review:

I have grown and eaten hot peppers but never as hot as these. I took a nibble of one and cried for 30 minutes and 6 hours later my hands burn from deseeding them even though I washed with every substance imaginable. Maybe it is my soil but omg. I am canning these in a lightly sweet pickling juice for gifts for friends who claim no peppers are ever too hot! Beautiful yellow, tons and tons on the plants but they need s danger sign stuck in the ground in front of them.

What are the pros? So many peppers

What are the cons? None

Review:

First time to try this pepper. Will definitely be saving seeds for next year. I will also been pickling some for eating with beans and cornbread. Yes I'm from the South. They go so well with Chinese stir fry with the citrus flavor. We have had some really hot days lately and they just took off. I really like that they are not so extremely hot. I love some heat and these are just the right blend of heat. Very thin skinned saute up quickly. Yes it's a winner in my book. Thanks Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds for bringing the most excitement to our little garden.

What are the pros? Very healthy and prolific

Review:

I grew these last year from plants given to me and they were unbelievable, so prolific and good. I am ordering seeds now to start my own plants. I had so many of these peppers that my friends all got some. I make hot pepper jam....and I found a recipe for a lemon hot pepper jelly that I put up with these peppers. So yummy. Everyone got some in their Christmas basket. These are so pretty growing in the garden too.

Review:

I grew in 5 gallon buckets, some with drainage holes and others self-watering (self-watering was significantly more productive). Slow germination and growth rate, recommend heat mat. Once they take off you have a constant supply of peppers. Branches can't support the weight of so many pods and will need caging. One plant is really all you need: I have picked more than 100 pods per plant, moved 2 into the greenhouse for overwintering, and am still getting dozens of ripe pods weekly in December, when the rest of my pepper plants have stopped producing. The flavor is not for everyone, it has an astringent citrus flavor and an immediate heat, close to Serrano, that fades quickly compared to other hot peppers. Flavor lends itself to seafood and chicken dishes and is complimented by cilantro, good as a powder for soups and stews. I have high hopes for the lemon pepper and garlic hot sauce currently aging. Permanent garden addition.

What are the pros? Flavor, color

What are the cons? Grow wide, may need support

Review:

We grew 15 varieties of hot peppers in 2015 and this is one of our favorites and will grow every year from now on. Heavy producers, plants grow wide so it is helpful to use some sort of support so the branches don't break off due to the weight of the peppers, or at least tie up the branches to a central stake. Produces hundreds of peppers per plant and keeps producing up until frost. Flavor is unique and about as hot as a cayenne. Great dried and ground up and used for flavoring pale colored soups and other foods where you don't necessarily want red color added from other peppers.
