This pepper plant has a great all around performance from the foliage to the changing color of the peppers. A bit hotter than a Jalapeno but satisfying when used in recipes where you want that kick but nothing overpowering. Grown in a container the size is a bit contained but never the less still a bushy pepper plant with a prolific amount of peppers. Very disease resistant even when transported in a humid trailer, in and out of sun, and then back again, it performed great and showed no signs of being unhealthy. Definitely will plant again as it is still producing will into late summer.
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
FeaturesCHLOROFORM follows FUNCTION.
A hot and spicy pepper, but not so hot you'll need to call the fire department. First ripe fruit takes 65 to 72 days from transplant. Glossy foliage minimizes water loss and contributes to low water needs for this plant. Fruit sets and matures quickly once ripe fruit begins to present.Award WinnerEdibleHeat TolerantDeadheading Not Necessary

A hot pepper that works well in landscapes and containers. It may need trellising to maintain upright habit. Fruit transitions from geen to orange to red, with multiple colors represented on the plant at the same time. Fruits can be harvested when they begin to show good color and are fully ripe when solid red. Taste is pleasing if picked before full maturity. If you are growing this plant in a container, a 12" diameter (3 gallon volume) is the minimum necessary size. The ideal size would be a 14" to 18" (5-7 gallon) container.Maintenance Notes:
Easy to care for. It loves heat and will thrive through the summer months. Fruit can be harvested until first frost.
