Gardeners' Notes:

does well here , I have grown it for the past year from seed . It has also reseeded itself in the bed it was planted in. I purchased gallon containers of this last year from the Fort Hood post Exchange and at the end of the season I saved about fifteen peppers and dried the seed . Seems I did not have to as it reseeded nicely . I have not eaten the peppers personally but the add a nice slice of color to the front walk . I have to add this is not my favorite ornamental pepper but it is the most carefree and easy pepper to grow if you want that pop of color . It starts out white and ages to red but the in between is beautiful and as the plant matures you can have 3 or more color peppers on the same plants .
