As you can imagine, this adds to the "rarity" of this pepper.
Rare?!? You should live in Texas. They are all over. I have one in the corner of my yard that came up as a volunteer about 4 years ago. It is over six feet tall. It never gets water and never gets pampered when its cold. It is always loaded with pepers.
