My favorite pepper

These peppers were amazingly productive and tasty. I began harvesting them in July when they were lime green. At that stage they are all flavor and no heat. As they ripened they developed a slightly more complex flavor and more heat. The red ones were as hot as my La Bomba jalapenos, but removing the seeds and scraping out the pith brought them back down to mild. Probably because I harvested peppers at all stages, I got a huge harvest--at least 50-60 peppers per plant. If I could only grow one pepper, this would be my choice.

All the flavor! Nada the heat!

Grew these peppers this past season just for fun since they were new-ish. And wow...Amazed!! Ive never had a pepper with soo much flavor, but barely and heat at all. I used them to make a Haba-y-Nada jam with the habaneros I grew as well, and its the best jam I think Ive made yet. Each plant was very prolific-at minimum 15-20 peppers per plant. And they grew great in pots (I do an all container garden). Will certainly grow these again, only thing is they took muuuch longer to ripe than my other peppers-I didnt harvest until September and started from seed beginning of March. Overall, one amazing pepper!
