One of the most highly prized peppers for japanese cooking and stir fries. This pepper is also wonderful pickled and fresh. it is hot, sweet, and crisp, yet it also is a prolific producer. If you like the pepperoncini pepper, this is very comparable in size and shape, but totally different in flavor.

    So glad this is available. Highly prized in Korean cooking as well, My favorite pepper by far. Tastes like a hot pepper without the bite! Occasionally one will get hot, but usually sweet.

    One of my new favorite peppers. Delicious raw, pan seared, and it dries very well. It adopts the crispy, cracker-dryness of a cayenne. It also produces quite prolifically with very minimal attention. The fruits tend to ripen to red unevenly. So, I recommend a number of plants if you want the reddish ripeness in a larger quantity. They do hold on the plant pretty well- perhaps a full or two past full red-ripe stage. Unlike many others peppers I have had, they don’t tend to rot as easily if picked and left out prior to being able to process or cook.

    If you have room for a trial pepper this year, give this one serious consideration.

    I’m not a pepper person, but these are the most prolific pepper variety I ever grew. The entire plant is covered with pepper, I regret not growing more plants. If you grow a dozen of these you can get buckets load. It does help if you have moderate climate.

    Prolific and pretty hot. This is my first planting this pepper. They took longer to germinate than other pepper plants, So, I kept planting more seeds (impatient). I’m glad I did. I ended up with four plants. They’re great!
