Item Details

The piercing heat of this late-maturing pepper is worth the wait, and its deliciously fruity, sweet, and citrus-y flavor and excellent crunch only add to its enjoyment. The highly branched, leafy plants produce light-yellow, finger-shaped fruits with creases and folds. The fruits grow 3-3 ½" long on plants that reach up to 3' tall. 100-120 days.

Tall and abundant producer

Seeds germinated great. Plant grew tall but swear its bigger around. I nicknamed it the tree. Peppers are a favorite with a cirtus-y crunchy flavor. A great addition to salsas. Plant resembles a bushy tree with yellow ornaments hanging from it.
