What are the pros? Vivid colors, palette smacker
What are the cons? Transplant issues
This rarity drew me to Baker Creek this January and I've been hooked on their catalog ever since. The Fish Pepper stands out for its white-striped leaves and peppers, and it was a reward to see after six long months of care. Like many hot peppers, the Fish is a slow grower - it took two months for the seedlings to be transplant-ready, and the bushes took about three months to mature. My seedlings went into transplant shock for a few weeks (one didn't make it), but the leaves eventually became healthy and turned white or emerald green. I had to hand-pollinate the blossoms with a Q-tip due to a lack of bees, but I was able to yield three dozen peppers. Watch out, the ripened red peppers are scorchers. They make good substitutes for Thai peppers in curry and stir-fry dishes.
