Positive Suze_ On Aug 29, 2007, Suze_ from (Zone 7b) wrote:

Great flavor, extremely sweet. Plants top out at about 3 feet in height, and branches tend to bend from the weight of the peppers, so some type of support would be recommended. Some peppers can get up to 6" long, but most are only about 4-5".
