HOT!!!
Reviewed By: Saba (Schaumburg, IL)
I bought the plants last year and got many peppers. Hot and delicious! I use them in curries and they give the curries a totally different and unique taste! Love them! Will plant again next year.

Lantern peppers
Reviewed By: paul (herndon, VA)
Very easy to grow. Produced a lot of peppers and were ripe about a month before the habaneros. However the Lanterns were noticeably less hot and flavorful than the habaneros. We made hot sauce and dried pepper with the Lanterns.
