Ratings & Reviews
I ended up with three good-sized plants of these peppers. The peppers matured to both yellow and orange, and were just as tasty as a full-sized bell pepper. The fruits were definitely miniature though, only a few got to 2-3 inches in length or width, most were a tiny 1.5! Best for snacking, not cooking.
Small but great flavor and many uses
This is the only variety of pepper that germinates and does well in my clay soil, in Zone 6a. I planted seeds in 18" pots on my deck. This year will try some seedlings in garden. Even though peppers are about 1.5 to 2 inches, I stuffed & baked them, used them in stews, casseroles, and ate fresh. Whether they were raw or cooked - very nice tase.
