I bought 2 of these pepper plants. Arrived in great shape. Very healthy plants - produced wonderful tasting peppers all through the season. Easily our favorite pepper this year. Will grow them again next year.

Pick this one by mistake, but was I lucky. Delicious and plentiful.

My peppers were shipped, the plants intact. They plants continue to bloom and have at least 7 to 10 peppers on each plant already. I received them late May. July 2014 ~San Diego, CA.
