Love them. Just enough heat and sweetness for cooking and salads.
Nearly all the seeds sprouted.
Germination was a decent success with about 2/3 germinating. I was late in the season planting( seeds were gifts for Father's Day last year) so I I will say the lateness might have stunted the plants. I wintered the plants in my green house and 3 plants survived to the spring. Chilly spring but when temps warmed, the plants came to life. Good lord did they take off!! Plants are about 6ft tall and loaded!! Pods are averaging about an inch and a half and a buetiful candy apple red. The plants love the heat but keep them watered. Texture is thick walled and somewhat crunchy like a banana pepper. Flavor is as advertised with fruity flavor. But it doesn't give the flavor of this pepper justice. Heat Delay is about a BC level of 2 and tends to burn the front of the mouth. As flavorfull as this pepper is, I'm giving the rating a 4 instead of a 5 because the heat level is inconsistent pepper to pepper. Range is about 5k-30k scoville. I highly recommend these peppers for cooking or raw.
I love these peppers and had a huge beautiful plant last year. Wish I could say the say the same for this year. First time buying from Pepper Joe and while they did ship quickly, not one seed popped. Having spent almost $15 (including shipping) for 11 seeds, it’s disappointing to say the least. I start thousands of seeds each year for a plant sale business, so it’s not my first rodeo germinating.
Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85*. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have, we are happy to help!
They replaced me the seeds. All my other peppers grew but these
