From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R7--Release #7 on September 3, 2015. This Capsicum chinense from Christopher's collection is part of a fun set of peppers known as the 'Lightning Habanero' mix. The original variety was bred by James Weaver from Pennsylvania. Christopher has grown five colors of this variety: red, chocolate, yellow, peach and mustard! The variety produces beautiful zig-zag form pods on sprawling plants. They are very prolific and the pods have a medium to high heat level. Be sure to try them all! To our understanding, there has been some variation in colors reported by growers. We have had consistent pod appearances, but the general stability of each color strain is not known. We believe this line of peppers was first released in 2011.
