Our go to pepper for sauce
We have grown these peppers for years! It's our go to pepper for homemade hot sauce. The plants grow sturdy. Very good producers.
Excellent Hot Pepper
Excellent, hardy, and heavy bearing, even in NW Montana. Copious amounts of long, shiny red peppers with a surprising amount of heat. Wear gloves when cutting these! The seeds themselves are extremely hot. I planted only 12 plants and they produced so many that I had plenty for salsa, pepper jelly, and was able to give away so many to others. I saved my seeds and will definitely plant again!
