Lots of 4" to 6" peppers that mature to yellow. Fruit don't seem to hold well on the plant - once they mature they will quickly start to dry. Flavor is good and typical of cayenne types. You will harvest fewer fruit when you allow the peppers to mature on the plant. My plant was put in very late so it has not reached its full potential. Planted late July, still bearing here in Reno in October. No frost so far.
