Wow, just plucked the first ripe one off the plant and jiminy crickets these are freaking hot! I'm glad i only dared to try a bite of it. I can eat habaneros just fine but these are on another level. Which reminds me it actually tasted reminiscent of a habanero. it's the hottest fresh pepper i've ever tried, I was outside pacing in my front yard with a cup of milk until it subsided. My hand is still burning as I type this review. I guess the only other thing I could say about these if you like yellow super hots, this is a delicious and VERY HOT variety for you to try in your garden.
I recieved these free, and as other commenters noted, these germinated quickly and grew well. Loads of peppers on 2 plants. The flavor was very Citrusy and obviously very hot, instant heat. The only reason I didn't give this one 5 stars is because the peppers seem slightly prone to rot while developing. Could be blossom end rot, but something to watch out for still. Otherwise, easy to grow for a super hot!
I ordered these along with some other peppers. Not only did i get them 3 days ahead of schedule, but they also included 3 other types of peppers for free! Germination will be excellent im sure, as it would take about 4-6 weeks for results probably.
I purchased Carolina Reaper seeds and Pepper Joe graciously sent me the 7 Pot Lava Yellow seeds for free. I gave them a shot and they were the first to sprout this season only taking 7 days. I consider myself a novice and this is only my second season growing peppers from seeds. I'm in West Central Florida and the temps in mid-March are already reaching the 90's. Can't wait to see how these turn out. Thank you Pepper Joe!
I purchased 10+ of these seeds and only four seeds arrived. I also purchased several other varieties of pepper seeds from pepper joe. All others had 10+ seeds in the pack. All varieties have a 0% germination rate. Not one single seed of any variety has germinated. I have an 85% germination rate from similar varieties from other seed sources.
