Gardeners' Notes:

These are very prolific and hotter than advertised. I feel they are hotter than Jalapeno peppers. Not that it is a bad thing, but they won't fill the niche I had them planned to fill. I thought they would come in with heat like a Plabano or Big Jim.

A lot of generic information filled in on a lot of the peppers on this site.

Awesome pepper, compact habit, loads of fruit. Already made two batches of relish , using this weekend stuffed with cheese and fried instead of jalapenos. Delish flavor, looks and tastes great in all color stages. Will definately grow again and last crop will go into making a med heat sauce...
