This pepper grows into a beautiful and compact, 8-12” plant with many small clusters of 4-6 fruits on top of the plant. Colors range from lavender to light yellow and then maturing to a light orange. Peppers are spicy and edible. The clusters of peppers on the tips of each compact branch are an ever-changing array of pastel Easter colors. You will see shades of lavender, yellow, and orange all born on a plant. This plant is heat and humidity tolerant and perseveres in rain or drought and earned it the All-America Selections Award.  This winning plant really turns heads and is stunning in containers or mass plantings.

Fun little plants!

This will be the second year planting Easter Ornamental peppers. Last year, I experimented with this varietal and they were the eye-catching centerpiece of my garden! Not only are they beautiful to look at, the little pepper plants are amazingly prolific, producing hundreds of edible peppers. I harvested them when they matured to a deep orange shade and dehydrated most of them. I also candied a batch in a simple syrup blend for a sweet treat that packs a punch!

Gorgeous

These were by far the prettiest peppers I've grown. We had them in pots and they were jus beautiful. At the end of the season there were a ton of them, they had all ripened to an orange-red, so we used them to make your fermented hot sauce recipe in our crock and it turned out great!

Pretty peppers!!

These are surprisingly beautiful - and are quite striking in my tall ceramic pot in my garden. Very bushy, but not huge plants, they are gorgeous. I've tried a couple of the bright orange ripe ones, they have a bit of heat but not a dealbreaker. I think I'll use them for hot pepper flakes at the end of this season, they're still going strong in brilliant orange right now (Oct 1st in Colorado).

Prettiest Peppers

These are definitely the prettiest peppers I've grown! The color transformation is amazing, the peppers really do look like they are glowing, especially at twilight. They don't seem to be too spicy, but maybe I overwatered them and washed out the heat. But I'll chop them and add them to salads or salsa for extra color and a bit of heat. I want to grow these Easter ornamental peppers every year, they are stunning in tall pots.
