Didn't grow


Was so excited to try these. Seeds did great got 1 set of true leaves. Hardened off for 2 weeks, planted and then no growth at all

Seed Savers Response: Hi Kate, I’m sorry to hear this variety didn’t do well in your garden. Please reach out to our customer service team for variety and planting suggestions and tips.

Nice Variety


We've grown these for the last couple of years and they've been a great producer with nice heat and interesting color. These were the earliest hot peppers to produce for us this year too!

All around great medium heat pepper.


We've grown these the past four years. We love them, for their growth, production, coloration, and heat. Will buy again.
