This medium heat pepper was my favorite. It was the earliest, highest yielding, most reliable, tasty pepper that I have grown for many years but I cannot find anyone selling seed for it anymore. It was originally sold by Sheperds seeds but they no longer carry it. I hope to come across it again someday.
