Ratings & Reviews
Beautiful plants and fantastic producers
It was such a joy watching these peppers grow. Every plant had beautiful deep purple-streaked stems, often with deep purple in the leaves, that were soon covered with delightful purple flowers. The fruit set reliably as small green peppers that quickly turned purple, then eventually ripened to red. The plants are very vigorous producers - I got dozens of peppers per plant. Just as described, I used these peppers as I would a jalapeno - including picking and using them raw before they were ripe (still purple). They have a wonderful flavor and are not too hot (with the exception of a plant that was damaged and became stressed - the peppers that came off of that plant were really hot for a few weeks!).
