I noticed these were a little unpredictable. Some were surprisingly spicy, but seemingly not more than a jalapeno, in my opinion (maybe just an equally hot but different type of spicy flavor like how a red pepper gradually warms up your face vs a jalapeño hitting your tongue like a snake). Some came out mild. A good pepper to pluck, rinse, and crunch. Overall the plant produced many peppers and I was only using a three gallon bucket.
