Big, beautiful peppers that are a bit less hot than habaneros, but with an intense fruity flavor all their own. This cross was done with flavor in mind, and it has great flavor and so much much more. Massively productive plants are low to the ground, protecting them from wind. From South Carolina pepper breeder Kevin Bane.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Kevin is an experimental pepper grower and typically grows most his peppers in the same field with little isolation distance. This allows the possibility for a small percentage of his seed (2-3%) of any given "cultivar" or "breeding population" to be crossed up. We are comfortable with this possibility. Mostly the cultivars are very stable. And also, given EFN's propensity for selling experimental grexes and genetically diverse populations, we don't expect this will deter most of our customers!
