I don’t have any background info on this chile. It is mostly grown I think, for it’s ornamental value. The stems and leaves have a dark purplish color. The peppers go through several color changes before turning a bright red.

This was a nice pepper. The flavor wasn’t outstanding, but wasn’t bad either. It was slightly sweet, a little sour tasting. The heat was pretty immediate on the tongue only. The heat level was a little less than Jalapeno level. The pod I tried had 24 seeds.
