I get your point.
Not painting all with the same brush, but for me and my experience this past year, the "ornamental" pepper lived up to the name. "Looked great." But "taste wise" it sucked. Beautiful and plentiful but just not for eating. Again, not all and every , but I can say with confidence that in this case, I'd wager a war pension that you and most who would try them, would agree that in taste they "sucked."
Wished I'd saved some to send you but I did not. Gone now.
I won't buy any, but should I again get one as a gift, I will grow it in respect for the giver. Be grateful with politeness, but if follows like before, the term "ornamental" is for reason, "pretty to look at" it just "ain't for eatin."
