    I would not advise eating that.It is in fact an ornamental pepper and is mainly used for the color variation through the season.

    The lawn service employees (Hispanic) certainly like them, they had a standing invitation to pick a few each week. They save them for their lunch break.

    Oh, additionally, the ornamental pepper with three different colors on one plant--each color pepper has a different level of spicy heat. After my suggestion of planting seeds, one employee now has his own yard's supply. The seeds of a dried pepper germinated wonderfully. He's so proud!

    Definitely edible. Definitely hot little guys. Germinating in a wet coffee filter in a ziploc bag on top of the refrigerator will give you a great germination rate. Mine for some poblanos this year was about 90%. I also did some button purple hot little guys and had at least 80% germination.
