Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Organic African Devil Pepper
Organic African Devil Pepper (90-105 days)
250 mg packet ~30-45 heirloom pepper seeds.
This pepper comes to us from a friend who spent his childhood years in South Africa, in Durban to be exact, where he said this pepper grew everywhere in the wild spread by the birds. For years he has longed for its unique flavor. Finally, his daugher was able to bring him a few seeds last year and he got them started here. Thankfully, he has shared them with us and now we are passing them on to you!
The African Devil pepper or Peri Peri (means "pepper pepper" in Swahili) as it is called in Africa grows 1-2" long by ¼" wide.
Peppers are extremely hot, grows upright, and turns from green, to orange, to red when mature.
The Peri Peri is cultivated in Africa for spice production and of course can be found in the wild.
Besides dried/ground spice, you can make great sauces from African Devil Peppers.
These Hot Sauces are used in stir-fries, cooking shrimp, poultry dishes, soups, stews and to add some zing to fish dishes.
