- Leaves are a bit paler and more narrow than other pepper varieties. Plants start branching early and stay very compact for the large number of the pods they produce. Early flowering and fruit set. Pods are small and cylindrical in shape, about 2-2.5" long and 0.75" in diameter. They are smooth, as the name suggests, and mature from green to golden. Medium heat. Very prolific.
