Mild, spicy flavor - like a pepperoncini, but with smoky undertones. Early and prolific, with loads of sweet bells that average 3 to 4" long by 1 to 1-1/2" wide. A perfect choice for grilling and salsa. Can be eaten at the green or red stage. Plants are compact and bushy.
Scoville Rating: 230 to 330
Ornamental as well as edible – if you can stand the heat! Its stocky, 8″ plants are covered with peppers that start out a deep green in color, then mature to bright red as they grow 2 to 3″ long. Fleshy pods are particularly good in Oriental dishes and chili. You’ll appreciate their beauty in borders and containers, and savor their flavor in the kitchen!
Scoville Rating: 50,000 to 100,000
This hybrid hot pepper will produce excellent yields of 7′ x 3″ fruits on the 18-24″ tall plants. Stake this variety because of its heavy crop. Although not as hot as some, it still has a “bite” with fruits maturing from green to red. Resistant to potato Y and mottle viruses. As with all hot peppers, remember to wear gloves or wash your hands thoroughly after picking or preparing these fruits.
Fruits, 4" long are mildly hot at 800 to 1,000 Scovilles. Heat will increase depending on how late in the season peppers are harvested. Ripens to bright red at full maturity and ideal for making chili sauces, salsa, stir-fries, sauteing or fresh use. Produces more, and larger, fruits per plant than similar varieties.
