The pods pop off the stem very easily. The pod size is very tiny and thin-walled, full of seeds. Removing seeds appeared to have removed a lot of the flavor as well, as all I was left with was the tiny walls. I needed a second pod that I could have eaten whole. The flavor was a little unique, not very bitter. It had brief, sharp heat, not super intense. I think it would taste great dried or cooked with.
