Dark phenotype – with dark foliage, beautiful purple flowers, and dark fruit that ripen a to a maroon shade. Cut into the ripe fruit and expose unique purple pigmentation on the connective tissues. When purple, I have found the fruit to be very mild, less heat than a jalapeno.
Fully ripe, I do not taste the 200-400K SHU some report. While not scientific, in a personal tasting of this cultivar, I estimate 20-40K SHU. Smell is another one of the unique characteristics of this pepper. The smell is best described as a funky floral – almost horse blanket like, to steal a homebrewing sensory term!
