I've only picked one so far, and none of the others have reached the same size yet, so it's hard to say. But if the 9 that I have growing manage to get close to the same size as the one that I picked, there's a good chance that it would make a decent side dish for 3. Day 66:
It's Day 84 and most of the peppers under the canopy are ripening! I've already picked 4 of them. Family was in town last Friday so I picked 6 of the eggplants and brought them over. The view from below:

You are so close to the best part of a project, Adrian. Tasting them! For me, my favorite taste test on new peppers is thinly sliced, thrown in with scrambled eggs, extra sharp cheddar cheese, green onions, fresh garlic, basil and cilantro. The perfect culmination of a project.
The peppers are good. Great size for a low carb/ketogenic diet. It's Day 110 and the eggplants are trying to take over the entire machine. I've roasted a few in avocado oil on several occasions and the taste reminds me of potato chips!
Sliced. I noticed something this morning when I picked 4 more - two were dark purple and the other two were yellow/purple. (Looked like yellow layered over purple.) The two that were purple had no seeds. The yellowish ones both had lots of seeds. Is this kind of thing common with hybrids?
