It took more than a month from the time this pepper was fully grown for it to turn from green to orange. Every day I thought I'd end the wait and harvest it early. Somehow I held off. Bryn, Nusia and I had a celebratory predinner tasting moments after cutting it off the plant this evening. It was worth the wait. The Purple Beauty variety we planted also grows quite an attractive fruit but it doesn't taste anywhere near as good as this one.
