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.

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!

I planted this pepper from seed a few years ago and have been bringing it inside during winter/keeping it outside in warmer weather and it produces plenty of spicy little colorful peppers! It even produces fruit when inside! Love it!

What are the pros? Beauty, production, heat

What are the cons? None, great pepper

Review:

My favorite pepper, they are beautiful and grow quickly. I found the flavor yummy and acidic, great for hot sauce. They start mild (purple) but when they are ripe (red) they are very spicy. I love pickling them and putting them on salads.

What are the pros? Great taste, keep-freeze well

What are the cons? None

Review:

First planted these last year (2016) being very intrigued by the seed packet photo and description. I started them indoors in pots rather late (around mid May). Once they sprouted, which took about 10 days or so, they grew quickly and flowered but did not produce peppers until I put them outside. Then they took off and produced peppers prolifically in spite of the fact that they were put out later than normal and did so until hard frost. I I have found that the deer will eat the foliage. I live on property that has a deer trail that runs through it and deer did nibble on the plant's foliage before I put nets over my beds. I did taste them at every color stage to see if there was much of a difference in heat and didn't notice a great deal of heat difference. They have a fresh, clean pepper taste that has heat, but is not objectionable. If you prefer to pick and eat them at a color other than red, eat them soon as they ripen through the color stages to red rather quickly if not frozen.
