My Peters arrived!!! I have them in red, orange and yellow. I'm getting inconsistent info on hottness. Some say they are blazing hot, others say their just hot, others mildly hot. Has anyone here grown them? What do you say?
I've not grown them or tasted one yet but looking forward to growing them this year too. I'm not even sure which color I have but will probably need the other colors hahaha.
I've mostly heard/read them as mildly hot, or not too hot and not too mild but just the right heat. Maybe on the same level of heat as a Serrano or Cayenne pepper. On the Scoville scale, they are noted at 7-8 on a one to ten scale, or about 5,000 Scoville untils.
Looking forward to imput and comments about these novel peppers.
Peters are started. It took about a week to come up. I started them in those little Jiffy expandable things and have them growing under a HID light. I initially used a heat mat, but now they're up I turned it off. No true leaves yet.
The didn't do all that well compared to my Japanese and Korean peppers. They went totally wild. I gave them to the neighbours when I just couldn't cook/pickle/freeze anymore and ended up putting them by the bucket on the compost pile when the neighbours started giving me dirty looks.
