What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? slow to ripen

Review:

I'm in zone 6, so I did not get the big, bushy plants like the southerners, but it did produce a good amount of fruit. Up north they are slow to yellow, and I would agree that there is a lemon flavor to the pepper. The heat is in the seeds, and if you bite into one, they are plenty hot.

What are the pros? beautiful bush, tons of fruit

Review:

While this pepper takes exceptionally long to germinate.... they do germinate. It's funny how they say this is a "two foot tall bush".......................Mine are 3 feet tall and sprawling out to 4 feet or more across. they are FULL of peppers.... Unripe peppers.... that seem to be taking FOREVER to ripen. Can't wait to actually have them ripe! First of the peppers i planted to produce... though I've been able to use my poblanos, and not these yet.

What are the pros? Great flavor, very prolific

What are the cons? low germination rate

Review:

My experience with these peppers is maybe a little unusual-- I tried growing them in 2017 but had very few of the seeds germinate, and those that did died in a seedling-massacre-by-kitten mishap, so I gave up on them. It turned out some of them germinated much later than expected (too late to do much with in '17), so I just kept them alive as very small plants through the winter and finally put them outside in May of '18. Finally given a large enough pot these guys went CRAZY. They are at least 4 feet tall, with 40-50 peppers on a plant. The flavor is phenomenal, very sweet and fruity while still having a pleasant but not overwhelming level of heat. I love them, friends love them, I think I'm going to have to try growing these every year (especially if I can overwinter them...)

What are the pros? Very high yield

What are the cons? more heat than taste

Review:

This pepper is unstoppable. It grows like a weed. I had one in about grow out of an old plastic bag by accident. They quickly grew to three and a half feet with a width of about three feet. You get peppers by the truckloads. In the picture it's hard to tell, but the fruits are small and so you end up with hundreds of them. Taste wise? Yikes. They are spot on with the description but I would add that it's more of a white heat. My partner could taste the lemon more than I could. For such a small pepper, unassuming pepper these things are deceivingly hot. It seems to grow very quickly in our hot, humid climate. I made sure to be diligent about pruning these. Once it starts producing fruit you won't want it to get to bushy or you'll have trouble accessing them easily.

Review:

Planted 7 seeds due to unreliable germination in the past with this variety, but all of these came up before any of my other peppers! If these come true to type, as my other purchases from Baker Creek have, I will have more than enough of these little guys to season sauce for years to come! The description is accurate. This pepper has a fruity or herbal aroma backed by an intense heat, somewhere between a red Thai pepper and a standard, orange Habanero. They work great when you want heat without any smoky or bell pepper taste that often comes with jalapenos, serranos, Hungarian wax, etc. Baker Creek has an excellent service department. Contact them with any questions or comments within their regular business hours and they will usually respond within 48 hours or less. And I cannot stress enough, their products match up closely with the descriptions given on the seed packets, with very few off-type or diseased seedlings. If you have had bad seeds from other companies, try here!
