What are the pros? Did very well even in Alaska.

What are the cons? Aphids love it

Review:

This variety did extremely well- last year was amazing for SantaFe peppers and this year they struggled-yet the Fish flourished even outside at times due to Aphid infestation. Last night at sub 50 degree it looks great. I agree they would be a good substitute for my Thai Ascent chili's. Will save seeds and grow many more. Jeff

What are the pros? Tough pepper

What are the cons? none

Review:

This pepper is tough and harder to kill than all other peppers I have grown except for the Chilhuacle Negro pepper. I have yet to get fruits from these because of tomato hornworms eating my whole plant in only 2 days. It had no leaves left at all and still lived. It will be flowering in maybe 2 weeks from now, my other went in very crappy soil that was also newly made the week I planted it. All other plants died in that soil except for the fish but it didn't grow in a month and got yellower and yellower. Now that everything is good, the leaves look very nice to me also. This plant grows very bushy. The negro grows very lengthy. From what I've read these are medium hot, but lack adding much flavor except heat to food. I will propegate cuttings from my two remaining plants and clone for next March, but will update this review once I taste pods from the two plants

What are the pros? Vivid colors, palette smacker

What are the cons? Transplant issues

Review:

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.

What are the pros? Prolific. tasty

What are the cons? Slow to put on flowers

Review:

Probably my favorite pepper this year, the plant was the biggest of all my plants, and produced the most peppers. It took longer than all my other plants to produce flowers. The flavor is great, if picked green they are more spicy, red more sweet. A bit smaller than i expected but still great peppers.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, good in north

What are the cons? NONE

Review:

Absolutely loved this pepper. Some hot peppers won't grow well up here, but this pepper grew huge. It had beautiful foliage and produced TONS of peppers, and earlier than all other varieties I grew this year (on par with the gochu for early production). The peppers were delightfully hot without being overpowering.
