This open-pollinated variety has mildly spicy, wrinkled, thin-walled, light-green fruit that turns red when mature. The plants produce abundant amounts of 3- to 4-inch long peppers, which are excellent for pickling. About 72 days to maturity, these are ready to start picking at just about the same time as my hot banana peppers and jalapenos. Although they become somewhat softer (less crisp) when mature, the peppers do seem to become a little hotter at that stage. I highly recommend these for anyone that likes pickled peppers!
