What are the pros? Good crop of large peppers
What are the cons? Prone to blossom-end rot
Grew two plants of this variety for the first time in 2016. Used 5-gallon containers, and these plants grew quite tall & were well-branched. The peppers produced all season long, with quite a lot of large 8-10 inch peppers. They were very thick-fleshed, sweet, and juicy. The seeds and veins tend to be quite hot, so prepare wearing gloves and remove all seeds and veins (down to the flesh if you prefer little heat). The taste was great. Cooked pieces in various dishes, but we also roasted pieces with a very low heat. The peppers did seem more prone to blossom-end rot, but there still were lots of good peppers produced. Found these best if ripen most of the way on the plant, then bring inside were they can languish on the counter for 3-4 days to completely ripen and await use. They held up quite well stored in this manner, sometimes even longer if the immediate supply was too great. Suspect their shelf-life in the crisper might be even longer, if one has too much on hand!
