Seed Savers Exchange - A Seed Savers Exchange staff favorite! Finger-sized fruit ripens from pale yellow-green to reddish-pink and tastes delightfully fruity with light citrus and berry overtones, yet are very hot. Juicy peppers have a crisp and crunchy texture and reach 3-4" long when ripe. Elongate, pendant fruit has a semi-wrinkled skin and pointed blossom end. Erect plants grow 2-3' tall and produce light-green leaves and stems, light-purple nodes, and white flowers with yellow spots. Highly productive, this pepper matures mid- to late-season. It was donated to Seed Savers Exchange in 1996 by Darrell Kellogg, who obtained it in 1987 from Bishop Nursery in Oregon. 90 days from transplant. Hot. Organic.
