What are the pros? Size and flavor

What are the cons? NOPE

Review:

I love the size of these peppers. Some are snack size, while others get a little larger. It's like the deliciousness of the red bell but in a smaller pepper. Quicker to ripen up too. I have eaten them raw, grilled them stuffed, roasted and canned them. I grow 4 plants every year and they can all fit in one whisky barrel or one garden row (4'). Compact plants with high yields. I start them indoors in February, even on the seedling heat mat with a growlight they are slow growers. But once they transplant (and they transplant well) and the heat turns up, they grow very quickly.

What are the pros? Easy to roast and skin.

What are the cons? Too many to eat!

Review:

I started these in a heated seed box and transferred to cells. I put them out after frost on drip and under black plastic for greater root heat. What an amazing producer! We had more than we could process on the 20 plants we grew. Best part is that they are so easy to process: Cut off tops and remove seeds. Lay on cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Turn off oven leaving peppers inside oven until fairly cool. The skins will be dry and the yummy flesh just squeezes out like toothpaste! Put them in freezer jam jars for freezing. Roasted red pepper soup all winter. I will be better prepared next year to save these sweet rich flavored peppers.

Review:

Planted indoors in March, moved outside in May here in Northern Illinois. Had about a 75 % germination rate. Plants were hearty and stood up to our high winds, extreme temperatures, and drought, which made this summer absolutely a nightmare. The plants lost all their leaves twice due to the winds, but they cam back strong, with thick stems, dense leaves, and lots of peppers. I pulled the flower up until June, in order to ensure a strong flush of peppers. When they came, we got wonderful peppers. One of the best things we did with them was to make lots of creamy red pepper and tomato soup on Sundays and for guests. They were also great in salads, grilled, on pizza, or as a snack. We are preparing to can the last of them for the winter to use on Italian beef sandwiches when the weather gets cool again. Will definitely grow these again.

Review:

Excellent producer. We had tons of beautiful, sweet red peppers. I grew them in a small, plastic covered home-made greenhouse, and they produced their first pepper about the time we harvested our first tomato (tomatoes were not in greenhouse). Good for short growing season.
