65 days — Some vendors market this variety as 'Hot Banana' and 'Hungarian Hot Wax', the fruits reach five inches long, are tapered, firm, yellow, waxy, and hot. The plants are dwarf, bushy, fourteen to sixteen inches tall, and are quite productive.

The fruits are typically pleasantly hot, not painful, reaching 5,000 to 15,000 Scoville Units while remaining quite flavorful. Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 30 seeds.

Grew this variety late spring (2011). Plants germinated easily and hardy. Started inside and transplanted to pots outside as directed. Plants grew well, but took much longer than 65 days to begin to flower (110-130). Even so, the fruit they produced was great and they are still producing now in SoCal winter (ave temp 60). Made a great addition to my chili in fall. Yum.

My Favorite
I plant this every year and save the seeds year after year. I pickle them for sandwiches and just eating right out of the jar. Just enough heat to be pleasant but not overpowering.

This year NADA
This year 2017 I attempted several types of peppers. In the past I did ok, but I was working on getting soil where I wanted it. I think I planted WAY too soon this year and seed directly in ground. Didn't get single one. I did the same with a total of five types of peppers. New plan next year. Don't make the same mistake I did.

VSC NOTES: Not sure why you gave it 5-stars :) but I agree with you, Jason ... Do not do what he did! Packet instructions are included not merely as a recommendation, but often times because species have very specific requirements for successful germination. In the case of peppers, they need very warm to hot soil temperatures to germinate and do not tolerate cool, damp soil at all. Best of gardening success to you, Jason, thank you again for your support, and thank you for sharing your experience here!

Prolific producers, great for pickling
Grew these last year. Small, compact plants with huge, regular yields throughout the season. Great picking pepper for use in sandwiches, salads, etc. Will grow again.
