Picked my first Billy Goat today. It's a very pretty pepper. My wife and I are about to sample it. I'll let you know how it taste later.

Nice looks similar to the ones I am growing. Did they go from green to peach to red?

Mark....I may have missed the transition. I've only seen light green, dark green, then red. I haven't watched as closely as I normally do though. We had three straight days of rain last week.

Armageddon....taste was excellent. Similar to a habanero, but IMHO much better taste with less heat. Just enough to burn, but not enough to hurt. It lingers nicely.

Tim, I agree, they're a nice medium/hot pepper.

Actually, they're my go-to choice for everyday use. If I'm ever reduced to growing only one pepper, it'd be Billy Goat ;-)

Tim, Billy Goat has a distinctive "cherries" smell, which is kinda neat. Did you pick that up during your tasting?

Just curious.

Rick....I didn't get the cherries smell, but in my defense, I broke my nose when I was about 20. My since of smell is horrible!
