Pods have a citrus like flavor and many say they are best eaten when immature. Excellent for making salsa.
Plant growth habit is large and branching and may need staking from over load. Aromatic and flavorful, especially when not fully ripe. Almost a "sweet grapefruit" like flavor. Fruity heat and crisp medium flesh makes this pod perfect for fresh consumption, most flavorful when green, an unusual trait for this species.

The best chilli pepper I´ve ever grown. Very easy to grow. Tastes good when eaten raw, too, unlike most chillies! Color is kind of translucent green while raw. I sow this every spring! :O) Highly recommended!
