Comments:

2023 Finally got a reasonable harvest! These are interesting because they look like small, red sweet pimento peppers but they are hot. Probably one of the hotter varieties I've grown. Extremely early for me this year, I harvested my first fruit in 67 days, although the main flush of them came about 2 weeks later. Kept producing for me until frost. A really fun variety, and perfect for a shorter season. Does well in pots.
2020 Due to a move unable to harvest peppers or seeds.
2019 Same plants this year, but that damn cool wet weather really hampered my harvest. Tons of flowers, but come late July fruit started dropping like crazy. Third time's the charm, right?
2018 Got two different plants with markedly different fruit, might be crossed seed. Slated to grow again in 2019.
