Could be grown as an ornamental!

Arrived well packaged and did well in my container. Absolutely beautiful plant. I love the delicate cream-edged green leaves and and the changing colors of the peppers. When they’re striped green, yellow and orange they are just beautiful. At that stage they weren’t quite as hot as a jalapeño. Once they ripened to a deep red they were quite a bit hotter. Maybe not the depth of flavor that I like in a hot pepper, but they more than make up for it in their beauty.

I love EVERYTHING about this pepper! From the story of its history to the unique look of both foliage and fruits to the incredible flavor and the ease of growing. Beautiful in every way!
