'nuff said....this is like an extra potent jalepeno. I picked up a couple of plants in torrington, WY last year and they went gangbusters. Probably got >200 peppers. Rather hot, they won me the flaming toilet seat at the local chili cookoff (Though this is Nebraska...people don't understand spice here). When pickled however, they retain their great flavor, but lose almost all their fire. My wife loves the pickled ones.
