What are the pros? Great fruit, diminutive size
What are the cons? nothing
This is a fantastic specimen for bonzai and or growing into a small pepper tree. Dont put these into the ground in june expecting a bumper crop two months later: truly hot peppers don't grow like that. Instead, grow it in a 1 gallon black plastic pot with a sandy loam and keep the soil wet for maximum growth (peppers have drought tolerance but the pot's raised structure creates enough drainage and they are NOT prone to root rot). They will fruit all winter for you after they reach maturity by fall or after a few months of veg growth. The fruit are absolutely beautiful and the high capsaicin is emminently useful. Dont do this as an annual please, Americans need to learn the true biology of what these plants are: perennial tropical trees, NOT annual temperate garden plants. The stem will become woody like the maple trees in your yard. Do it and don't look back. Great luck!
