I successfully grew this large plant (over three feet tall) for the last two years. It is prolific and healthy. My wife loves this plant for the several sauces she makes, which are quite tasty. The pod is 4 inches long or better and turns red when ripe. It has medium heat and I do not eat them raw but prefer them cooked. I will grow them in my garden every year and I recommend them to everyone - they are not difficult to grow. I think you will be happy you planted them.
