Screaming-hot little peppers turn a rainbow of vibrant colors, from purple, cream, yellow, orange to red as they ripen. Need I say ornamental? The plants are great for containers inside. Just pick a few any time to liven up your salsa.

What are the pros? Beautiful and easy to grow.

What are the cons? None

Review:

I was surprised how easy these were to grow. Just as easy as any of the less exotic peppers I've grown. The colors came out beautifully, and everyone who saw them thought they were pretty cool. They start purple and finish red. During much of the season they were reminiscent of Christmas trees, as there were peppers on each plant at different stages of maturity so you could see all 5 colors at the same time on each plants. They are quite hot. Taste is not my favorite, but not bad. That was all last year. I have some going this year too, and will probably continue to grow at least a couple of these short bushy plants in future years. They are sure to add some great color to my vegetable garden.

What are the pros? Beautiful and porductive

What are the cons? Little flavor

Review:

This is a very beautiful and productive plant and here in NH harvesting began in mid July from seeds germinated early March and potted up in a 5 gallon pot ( plastic restaurant pail ) mid May. They are hot but I found them to be lacking in any subtlety of flavor other than the heat. I did use them to make chili -garlic paste and very well worth growing for that alone.The end of August there were over 100 peppers of all the five colors with the leaves and stems having a kind of purple tinge to them so a spectacularly beautiful pant to grow for that alone as well as the earliness and productivity. I will grow it again next year just for the show , in a more ornamental pot, but not really for the fruit.

What are the pros? Prolific growth, colorful

What are the cons? Lots more purple

Review:

These have been a delightful addition to my first year of growing all heirloom plant from direct sowing. It is now mid-October and these little beauties are going strong. They freeze well and are a fun addition to soups, I will definitely plant these again next spring. Plenty for sharing!

What are the pros? Very colorful, easy to grow

What are the cons? Very, very, hot

Review:

I had never heard of these peppers until about a year ago, and I soon realized that they are not that popular! In fact, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds was one of the only sites that I could find the seeds. I live in Ohio, where we get 3-4 hot months during the summer. I planted 10 of these plants out in my garden that I started from seed, and I ultimately harvest over 5 lbs of these peppers! I can handle a good bit of spice, even though I am not a spicy food kind of guy, so I mostly canned them and gave them away to friends. Just a warning, these peppers are HOT! I also grow cayenne peppers, and I though these were much hotter than the cayennes. I liked them because they are very ornamental and they add a nice feature of color to your garden. Also, not many people know about them, so if you’re looking to impress or wow people with your garden, these are the ones for you!
