The Q&A Archives: Is This A Hot Pepper Or Not..robustini No Info. On Label
Question: Bought this plant and there is nothing to indicate if it is hot or not. I have raised many types but this one is new to me. Just do not want to bite into thinking sweet and get a surprise!!!! Thanks, Dana
Robustini is the name of the plant.
Answer: Robustini peppers are sort of an intermediate, not sweet like a bell pepper but not hot like a jalapeno. They are often used on salad bars as the pickled "hot" pepper.
