Ratings & Reviews
Great in cooler weather
First time I started peppers from seed. Just used my indoor small greenhouse. We live in the Pacific Northwest. So already not warm. And we have had a very cool summer for the most part. I will say that this pepper is amazing. It has (with the exception of another pepper) been an amazing performer in this weather! Once I transitioned outside in late April. By far the most fruit and definitely started sooner than any other pepper. I am excited to continue growing these peppers!
Easy, Productive & Beautiful!

Very productive, beautiful color, easy to grow. Have two plants I have basically ignored and they are happy as can be! Have been great in stir-frys and held up well in a beef slow cooker meal.
Just as good as described
These are just as described- productive, sweet (with just a tiny hint of kick), thick walled. I live in northern Michigan & have great success with these. I got them to dry for paprika, which is great, but also are wonderful for cooking, eating fresh, canning, & freezing. Sweet but bland when white, but continue ripening after picked when the season comes to an end. They keep well & are quite pretty too! Absolutely great!

Not really impressed so far...purchased a packet of seeds in early '21 and the germination rate has been sub par at best. Out of 22 seeds sown, I've had a grand total of 4 sprout. I got better germination from a 2 year old packet of jalapeño seeds that wasn't really taken care of sown in the same tray at the same time...
Seed Savers Response: Hi Michael I'm sorry to hear that this seed did not meet your expectation for germination. We do test germination every year to make sure only the best seed leaves out location. Please reach out to our customer service team to be sent a replacement for this seed.
