I like it. Nice little heat without being terribly hot. Nice Cayenne flavor if you like that sort of pepper. I sliced that one into rings and ate it on a sandwich. I also use them for crushed red pepper flakes.

I grew cowhorn one year from bonnie's plants and mine were tasteless and without any heat. Your cowhorn is huge, nice lookin' pepper!

The Cowhorns I have grown have never been more than mild heat, but the aroma is amazing. Similar to a cannibis smell. Don't know how else to describe it. The smell does not translate to the flavor though. Best use is fresh in salads I think.

Great looking cowhorn

The one I grew a few years back was the same thing. No real flavor and no real heat only a real disappointment. The peppers were also no where NEAR the size of that bad boy. So it sounds like you have a good one there (or like potawie said a cross)

Enjoy!
