Nice ornamental. Compact plants grew well in containers. Not particularly tasty but a good blast of heat. I live where these originate so I might be biased =)

I really like this colourful little pepper in my container plantings this summer. It has been very productive and very pretty. The peppers are all different shades of purple to orange and red all at the same time. The plants are compact and have been impressively drought resistant in the containers compared to my tomato plants (the ones in containers). It has been in full sun most of the day. I would definitely grow again.
