I saw this pepper plant at the Master Gardener Plant Sale in May of 2016 and had to try it. It was a rare plant to the PNW and I had never heard of it before. I really enjoy growing new things so I picked one up.
The plant is said to have a recessive gene for albinism and that is what causes the green and white striped leaves as well as the striped fruit. It is a gorgeous plant to look at, very ornamental and it does well in pots. The suggested use is in seafood dishes and it can be up to 10 times hotter than a jalapeno.

I have yet to try this unique pepper.
* Note: With all peppers, plant outside when the weather is warm. 55 F in the evenings.
