What are the pros? Prolific, early, flavor
What are the cons? Branchy
Grew this last year at 5,800 feet in Colorado. Had 4 plants, two were very productive, two not so much. The two good plants produced abundant small (2-3") fruits. Used fresh (green and red), they have great, grassy flavor, some with little heat, but some around jalapeno strength. Hotter for fruit that developed during hotter weather. Got plenty of red peppers, did a couple rounds of drying. Air drying yielded more fresh, fruity flavor. Dehydrator yielded more deep, rich flavor. Either way, the fruit made great medium heat chile powder and fantastic New Mexico style red chile. The only real issue is the plants have a tendency to be branchy and sag to the ground once fruit sets. But they don't break and I didn't have any trouble with rot for the peppers that matured on the ground. Some were on the ground for a month before maturing and picking. Just washed off the dirt and moved on.
