Grower: Kelly

Year: 2018, 2019

Accession: 224

Seed Source: Original seed from Dan & Val McMurray.


2019 Nice hot flavour, tons of flowers but was too late to harvest a lot of them so I saved what I could. Even got to eat a few before the frost killed the plant - nice hot but kind of sweet flavour. If I can figure how to grow this one in my short season it'd be amazing.
2018 Plant was just starting to come to fruit as we were hit with an early, heavy snow. Managed to save the plant, and will overwinter indoors for 2019.
