Details

This pepper is a tasty ornamental type that looks like a flying saucer or UFO! Chiles ripen from purple to orange and finally red. Compact plants produce cool, ornamental, edible fruits. Pods are crunchy and fruity sweet with a surprising kick of Jalapeno-level heat that comes on fast but fades quickly. They are great for sauces, salads, pickling and salsa. The flavors are all slightly different from another at each color stage. Non-Isolated.
