The gold bullet turned out to be one of the hottest and most productive habaneros I have ever planted. One of the plants grew to over 4' tall, and was so large in diameter the branches were mixed in with varieties 3 plants down, about 5' away. Great habanero flavor, super hot, though not up to red savina or fatali, and huge numbers of peppers on each plant, esp. the one. I picked over 120 ripe peppers off that plant at one time, and this was just one picking. Definitely an indeterminate pepper, as there were always fruits of different sizes and ripeness all over the plants. Listed as 2 1/2 times as hot as it's brother, the White Bullet, but it really doesn't seem like it...maybe a little hotter, though my method is unscientific! Only slightly later than the White Bullet, and it made up for it in production.
