Purple reaper Orange originated from my friend Jared Smith AKA Pepper Farmer J. I sold him seeds of the purple reaper in 2000. From those seats on his property he got the Orange variant. He was kind enough to send some seeds back.
This heat level is a little bit less than the purple reaper that ripens red. However the flavor is so much stronger is stronger sweeter and more Orange fruity flavor.
Mid season the late season producer medium yields.
