These peppers were pretty good. My only complaint is that you have to cut the ends off of the peppers shortly after germination (you can do it later, but it's not recommended) to achieve the look in the picture.

I ordered the seeds for these peppers awhile back because I wanted something with the hot bite of a jalapeno but is a little different than just a normal jalapeno. I like to be different than the norm, so sue me. Fortunately I heard about these bad boys and they do indeed contain a lot of spice and zing. Just perfect for salsas and sauces.

The problem is that I also like to create edible centerpieces with my food and the few times I have tried to fashion fine works of art that appealed both visually and culinarily the results are that no one eats these delicious peppers. No one at any dinner party or gathering I have gone to that featured a centerpiece I fashioned with these fine fruits has yet to experience the capsium delight because by the time they get through laughing they say their stomachs hurt so much they wouldn't be able to handle the spicy food. I tried taking one to a dinner being held at my synagogue and the results were mixed. Several of the older people acted scandalized by the presence of the peppers, but a lot of people giggled and made jokes that went over my head. Quite a few people remarked to me that at least it appeared that they were indeed "Jewish peppers". What did that mean? I didn't understand the joke.

I'll be making another centerpiece out of them next year for Thanksgiving dinner. My husband is for some reason a bit leery and had the same look on his face that he does whenever I bite one in half, but I think it'll turn out alright if I just chop them up (even though that suggestion had him turning pretty green...can't imagine why). So the lesson here folks...don't present them whole! For some strange reason people find them hilarious and/or off-putting when presented with a whole Peter Pepper.

I ordered from Seeds & Things. As there seem to be several sellers (and none are Amazon), with frequent negative reviews about dead seeds, this seems to be the most important thing about placing your order.

3/28/12: At a little over 2 weeks, all 6 seeds (of 11 received) we planted have sprouted. We planted them in pairs in an elongated trough like pot, and have kept them inside in our warmest window sill. I will plant the other 5 seeds in a few weeks as backup, and to have the fruit produced several weeks apart.

Update 4/20/12: The 6 sprouts are doing very well and I find it unnecessary to plant the remaining 5 (which I'll save fore next year). This weekend, we plan to transplant the now 3" plants to 3 separate pots and place them outside.

Update 6/15/12: The plants are now half way grown, so not yet to pepper producing point. At this rate, I expect to start seeing peppers in mid-late July.

Update 8/14/12: The peppers did begin growing in July, and 2 have finally rippened. A few do look like penises (maybe 1 in 5), while many are just wrinkly. But, each plant has produced about 20 fully sized peppers, with more growing, and all 6 seeds that I planted grew to maturity.

And:
Holy Crap are these hot! I'd rank them in with Habaneros.

Update 4/11/13: Planted 3 more of the seeds I purchased last year, all 3 have sprouted (pepper seeds are generally good for only the year purchased, or 1 year later), which means they were fresh when I bought them.

Final Update 10/12/13: 2 of the 3 planted earlier this year grew well. While they didn't produce as well as last year, our whole garden did worse this year. So I'd say these were excellent seeds, that lasted the 2 years they are supposed to last, and well worth the purchase.

I received my Peter Pepper Red Hot Pepper seeds in the mail about a month ago. I compliment myself on understanding the intricate nature of plants and their needs; so first I furiously buried each one into a warm, moist hole. Imagine my surprise when they started to grow almost immediately! Plants like these need water to survive so I dunked each one into my swimming pool. It was nearly freezing outside at the time and I was absolutely horrified to notice that each Peter Pepper shrank down from nearly six whole inches in length to a shriveled and barely noticeable little nub. Humiliated, I ran inside and rigorously ran my hands along their length in an effort to create some warmth and hopefully save them. Miraculously, each Peter Pepper grew back to their full size in a matter of minutes.

These are extremely resilient little peppers. If you take care of them properly (roughly 3 times a week and twice on Sunday), they will serve as a tasty treat whenever you want them to satisfy you.

Highly recommended to anyone who will service them properly.
