Hi all
I am planting a clown pepper this year. This is one I have planted before, but for the life of me I cannot find my notes on what it looks like, tastes, etc. When I google "clown pepper" I get dozens of pages for Pepper or Peppers the Clown! Anyone hear grow this variety and have a picture or a link to a description somewhere? Thanks for the help.
