Small, thin-walled glossy green peppers are popular as tasty appetizers that are most often pan-fried in a little olive oil and sprinkled with salt. Usually the flavor is bright and a little sweet, but every so often a pepper will appear with a shot of spicy heat. It is said that 1 out of 10 to 20 peppers will be hot. It is this element of surprise that makes eating these peppers so much fun. Easy-to-grow plants have a spreading habit and produce very abundant harvests. 60 days.
