These are very hot peppers, 9-10 on a scale of 10. In fact they are so hot their nickname is the gringo killer! Beautiful yellow or red peppers with black seeds which will not cross pollinate with your other peppers because they are a different species (which means you can save the seed of your sweet peppers). They ramble up trees or fences and last for years - they are fairly hardy and will take light frosts, excellent up the babaco, cherimoya or banana trunks etc in the subtropical orchard.
