Nice ornamental pepper, with small, deep purple and green leaves and light purple tiny pepper pods throughout the plant. Plants grow to around 15" high with a nice bush shape that does not require staking or support.
Pepper pods ripen from light purple to bright red in late summer. Grows well in smaller containers from half a gallon to 2-gallon size. I've been growing for the past 3 years, with no issues with diseases or pests.
The quickest pepper I've had that starts producing pepper pods. Pods are edible, the spice level is a bit spicier than jalapenos.
