The peppery flavor of this fruit is also good for fresh eating. Serve them as appetizers stuffed with cheese and herbs or place them on skewers and grill to enhance the flavor.

Ratings & Reviews
Superb sweetness. Mad I didn't have more!
by Pappy Rika
I was amazed at the thick, crunchy, sweet flesh. Zero heat and full sweet. I grew them for the first time last year and only had three of these plants. I've bumped that up to sixteen. I want to slice them for freezing, and also dehydrating. The sweet, dehydrated slivers were great to snack on. I can't remember if they need staking, but I grow my peppers in a tight, block arrangement to save space. I just use a stake on each corner and run a line around the outside of the block of plants. They support themselves on the inside.
Not my favorite.
I can never get any flavor out of this variety. They're always bland and watery for me, and don't ripen up to vivid colors. Wouldn't recommend for northern Illinois I guess. I put them in tomato cages otherwise they fall over and rot, so they are prolific at least.
Excellent! I will definitely grow these every year.
Excellent peppers! They start early, produce many peppers. Are great for eating, but wait until they turn orange to dehydrate and make into paprika.
