Update from previous review

I reviewed this pepper a few weeks ago and said I would update the review once the peppers turned red if anything changed. Since that time several of the peppers have turned from black to green to deep red.

The red ones are a lovely surprise! They are very sweet. Almost red bell pepper sweet and the heat has intensified. I snacked on several just by themselves but they are also delicious on sandwiches and in salsas.

If you grow this pepper, the black phase of the pepper is beautiful to look at but trust me, let them mature to red. What a difference in flavor!

Will definitely have these in the garden next year.

Beautiful, easy, prolific ... but bland.

I ordered these peppers last fall and started germination during the winter. They germinated in about five days with an excellent germination rate. The plants grew strong and healthy under indoor lighting until I transplanted them outside in March. I live near the gulf coast so I can get plants outside pretty early in the year.

The plant has green leaves with purplish tones. Blossoms are purple and beautiful. The plants are very prolific! Mine are absolutely covered in large, black, conical shaped peppers.

The peppers have a mild but nice heat level. I'd estimate it at about 5,000 SCU. The taste however is a little disappointing. Compared to the "regular" jalapeños growing right next to them, the black ones are less sweet and less flavorful. Perhaps they will sweeten more as they mature to fully ripe. If so, I'll return and amend this review to reflect that.

Regardless, I will probably grow this pepper again next year if for no other reason than it's a beautiful plant.

Easy to germinate and prolific

Growing in KC. Started seeds in late January and put into containers around May 1. I have 2 foot tall plants with 25+ peppers. I'm confident that I'll harvest 200+ before frost. Beautiful ornamental purple flowers to boot. Great seeds and plants. I'd attach a pic but the review won't allow.

Outstanding!

I really enjoyed growing, and eating, this pepper! The plant alone is beautiful; tall and slender with purple flowers. It bears abundant fruit as well. I will grow these again next year!
