What are the pros? High Yield, good flavor
What are the cons? None.
Shortish plants bore heavily. Compared to the other peppers we grew, these seemed less affected by pests. Flavor good, peppery but not particularly sweet. Good in fried dishes or raw in salads. Growing it again.

What are the pros? Outstanding flavor
What are the cons? Absolutely none
The company who pays for my 2.5 acres of research garden and orders produce from the 400 acres of varied vegetables from the farm on which we do research serves somewhere around 80% of Quebec's fine dining restaurants...
I get a lot of the country's best chefs to come and evaluate with me the many hundreds of cultivars in the trial field.
A lot of them loved the exquisite flavor of the pepper. Its flesh is very thin but once cooked delivers its fruitiness and richness of flavor like few do, even the best eastern european sweet peppers.
But where it shines SUPREMELY is once dried and made into pepper powder (paprika). I have ground up hundreds of peppers, almost all I ever grew, and NOTHING IS REMOTELY CLOSE TO THE UNBELIEVABLE UMAMI RICH FLAVOR OF THIS ONE.
It has rich notes of mushrooms, yeast, it is incredibly fruity. It transforms everything.
One chef threw his Szeged paprika in the compost pile...
What are the pros? pretty
What are the cons? none
I have grown this for 3 years. I think they are the most beautiful pepper!! the wall is thinner and the skin is thin too. Flavor is average pepper flavor. I just think they are beautiful!!!

What are the pros? Very attractive and flavorful
What are the cons? Long road from seed
The criollo pepper took quite some time to sprout, and then the plants were a lot less robust looking than the other varieties i grew. However, the peppers it produces are quite unusual and tasty, and people are delighted to receive them. I can't say that Criolla was the most prolific producer, but it is developing a decent amount of peppers. I'll definitely grow next year.
