Fish Pepper Seeds
This one is so fun to grow! It has very unique foliage that is mottled with green and white. This mottling continues to the peppers that are variegated with stripes. The 2" curving pendant fruits look a little like swimming fish. Peppers turn from white with green stripes to orange with brown stripes and finally to a mature solid red. Grown for its ornamental value. View all of our Ornamental Peppers »
In the 1940s seeds were received from Horace Pippin, a black folk painter in West Chester, Pa. The peppers came from Baltimore, where they had been employed by black caterers to make white paprika for the cream sauces then popular with fish and shellfish cookery. The white and green foliage and the striped pods derive their unique look from the same recessive genes that cause albinism. Capsicum annuum (90 days) Heirloom - Open-pollinated - Non-GMO
Heat Level: Very Hot Scoville 5,000 - 30,000

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are colorful and striped. If left on the plant the peppers will turn red at full maturity.
All of our seeds are GMO-free.
