Orange when ripe

I was disappointed in the taste of these purple peppers, but once they turned orange they were great. Pretty prolific plants too. I would have given 5 stars, but the name is misleading to me. I was hoping for a truly sweet purple pepper to mix with the yellow sweetie peppers.

Lots of peppers!

These pepper plants are loaded. I did find that they aren't sweet until they turn orange. Plants are healthy and I had great (90%) seed germination.

High Yields

Definitely get very good yields off of these. I only have 4 plants growing, and each planted is always loaded with pretty, purple peppers! They don't have a big pepper taste, but I'm ok with that, as you can taste more of any dipping sauce you may choose to dip them in.
