75 days--Fruits are a stunning medium lilac-purple. Crisp, juicy, and sweet! What a lovely addition to a relish tray! Medium-sized fruits start out yellow-green, ripen to purple, finally to red.

What are the pros? Great conversation, color

What are the cons? Flavor

Review:

These peppers are likely the nastiest peppers I've ever grown. The taste was bad at best, but they did add color to any dish. They don't overpower. I experienced a lot of rot spotting on the plant before ripening.

very small bad taste

What are the pros? pretty color

What are the cons? bad taste

Review:

These peppers were super small, hardly a bell pepper, more like the size of a usual hot pepper. They tasted very bad raw, and were tough to chew. We did add a few into our salsa, but we were afraid to add too many incase they made the whole pot of salsa taste yucky. Won't grow these again, I'll grow peppers that taste good.

Very prolific

What are the pros? Easy to grow, very prolific

What are the cons? A bit bland

Review:

We tried these seeds mainly for the novel color of the peppers. The seeds were fairly easy to start, and the plants proved to be quite hardy and prolific. Once they matured, they were among the largest pepper plants in our garden. To my taste the peppers are a bit bland compared to other bell peppers, but their flavor is best when you let the fruits get fully ripe. We test them by feel as well as by color. Some will turn a deep purple, but occasionally some fruits will turn red or some combination of colors between purple and red. (Don't know whether this could be caused by cross pollination with other peppers in our garden.) They fruits also vary in size, even when ripe. The larger ones are about the size of my fist, but smaller ones are maybe half that diameter. I think they cook up well in stir-fried vegetables. We'll grow them again next year.

Disappointing pepper

What are the pros? Healthy plants

What are the cons? yucky peppers

Review:

These peppers are really small, about the size of a double-wide finger. They taste yucky, and they're not really crunchy. The color is really pretty, though! And the plants are all really healthy. Just that the pepper are yucky.

What are the pros? Healthy color for the diet

What are the cons? None

Review:

I'm trying to include more raw healthy colors in my diet so I thought I would try it this year. (2016) It has survived the brutal hot and dry summer under sun shade with the rest of the peppers, producing small lavender fruits, perfect for snacking. My soil-less growing medium tested lacking in nutrients so they should do even better next year. Definitely worth trying.
