Started inside inside in March, transplanted in may and had fruit by the estimated date. Most of the seeds germinated, I planted the best 5 out of the 20 or so I planted. Fruits were orange to grapefruit size, great for stir fry, garden salads, fajitas, and everything else you can imagine. Thanks to the late coming winter of 2016 I was able to have peppers until start of December! I cleared out the garden just before thanksgiving and had a full 5 gallon bucket between these and the other varieties I bought from Pinetree.
