Another lovely hot pepper from South Carolina breeder Kevin Bane: "Big, beautiful peppers that are a bit less hot than a habanero, wiith an intense fruity flavor all their own. The cross carried out to produce this pepper was done with flavor in mind, and it packs a punch. Massively productive plants stay low to the ground, protecting them from wind."
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 grex and genetically diverse populations, we don't expect this deter most our customers.
