From the Christopher Phillips Rare Seed Collection R6--Release #6 on January 16, 2015. LIMITED OFFERING: This Capsicum annuum is another creation of the master pepper breeder Mario Dadomo. It is one of the most prolific varieties Christopher has grown. The plant is also beautiful as well as the peppers go through a purple stage and eventually ripen deep maroon color. The pods are surprisingly hot as well and have a nice flavor. It's an all around winner.
