Grew this in 2007, most prolific pepper I have grown besides cayenne. Easily harvested over 200 peppers from each plant, almost too much to use!

This is on the "always grow" list!

Very prolific here in S Fla. Harvested many good tasting, fairly hot peppers.

This variety came on a little slow, but by the end of the season the plants were large, and producing an abundant crop of chiles. I would say I got at least 30 off each plant.
