Fruit grows a vigorous 1/2” a week!

This is a new pepper to me but wow it has surprised me! The peppers literally grow over 1/2” per day even with recent cold nights in the 50s (zone 9b). She is a vigorous, enthusiastic plant I strongly recommend!

Nice pepper

This pepper did well in my container. It has a lovely, mild, sweet/hot flavor. I combined it with Hot Fish Peppers and made a wonderful fermented hot pepper sauce. It’s also quite pretty-large and banana-yellow. I do like a bit more heat, but if you think a jalapeño is a little too hot, you would do well with this one!
