What are the pros? Beautiful plant, tasty, spicy
What are the cons? What's not to like???
I've grown these peppers off and on all my life. They look great with the peppers themselves growing in clusters reaching for the sky. But don't keep them just as an ornamental. They bring a lot of flavor and spice to the table. I like to add one or two to a pot of chili to give it that extra zip that I dearly love. Or mince a fresh one up and stir about half of it into a big bowl of pinto beans with a piece of corn bread and a glass of sweet milk on the side, I'm in heaven. I use the peppers fresh just as they are starting to turn red then after they have finished turning red, I pick them off and dry them on strings. It's easy to dry them this way. Just take a piece of heavy duty sewing thread and a needle and knot one pepper stem on the end. Then run the needle and thread through the stems of the peppers and make strings about a foot long. Don't pack the peppers too tightly together. Then just hang the strings up in a dry place out of the sun but where there is good air circulation.
