Ratings & Reviews
Sweet heat. Great for drying and spice.

I haven't grown these in a few years, but I remember them having a good sweetness when ripe. They are productive. I was caught off guard by the heat, though. According to the average scoville on these, they should be around the level of a Poblano. Mine were more closer to a Thin, Red Cayenne, or somewhere in between. I had a dozen plants and the heat was consistent, so it wasn't a cross-pollination issue that got me. Just giving a heads up. I did have a lower tolerance for heat at the time. These are thin-walled and can easily be made into flakes or powder.
