What are the pros? Flavor, Heat, Beautiful Plant
What are the cons? Later Maturity
Experimenting with hot peppers in the garden is always fun. Maule's Red Hot was intriguing because of the fact that it was a 70 DtM in our, if we're lucky, upwards of 100 day season. The flavor is great under the heat. Pods are long and sometimes curled depending on pollination. Plants grew upwards of 40" in height and produced moderately. The real amount of production came around 90 days this year which was just in time for the 30 degree overnights. Would I grow it again? No, but that should not discourage others. We just don't get the "loads" of pods here even with 8 hours of direct light.
