This pepper is intensely aromatic, floral, and tropical with notes of citrus as well as pineapple and some may say watermelon. Aside from everything mentioned above, there is no heat
A fairly large habanero type pepper with big fruits growing up to 2" long and 1 1/2" wide. The fruits ripen to a bright yellow color and have a blocky, but roughly pendant shape. Fruits are commonly used for seasoning as they have minimal heat but feature a full, fruity flavor and aroma. An uncommon but desirable variety.
All pepper varieties are Heirloom and/or OP(Open Pollinated.) and Organically Grown 

Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.
Peppers do very well grown in pots.

Choosing a Pot

  • For growing chili peppers in containers, choose a container that has sufficient drainage holes (You can also use grow bags). A 5-gallon pot (12 inches deep and wide similarly) is sufficient for a single plant for most of the varieties. Use a 3-gallon pot for small varieties and a little larger 7 or 10-gallon pot for growing a large variety or if you live in a warm climate as peppers are a perennial plant there.

    When is the Right Time to Sow Seeds

    You can start to sow seeds 6-10 weeks before the last frost date indoors or anytime when the nighttime temperature starts to stay around or above 55 F (12 C). If you live in a tropical or subtropical climate, you can plant pepper seeds anytime except the peak summer.
