What are the pros? taste; super hot; juicy; nice
What are the cons? late
This was my latest pepper of 2016 that I started early in a Strong Camel greenhouse (transplanted outdoors in the spring). Peppers were finally turning orange in November. Nevertheless, this pepper deserves respect. I ate a yellow one in November and wow. First, I started with the tip. The taste was great (I can see why people would make hotsauce with it), but the heat felt a lot like a rugburn. It lasted a long time. I ate the rest, and it felt similar to, but hotter, than a Habanero, and it lasted a really long time. Tabasco is said to be between 30k to 50k SHU (about like Cayenne), but this was more like a Carolina Reaper to my mouth (yes, I have eaten one), except Tabasco didn't make me sweat, and the burn that followed in my stomach was more consistent (and the stomach heat didn't last as long); the mouth heat lasted longer, though, I thought. It's easily one of the most painful peppers I've experienced. I hear the late season ones are a lot hotter (so, that might explain it).
