This beautiful purple-colored pepper is slightly larger than the traditional serrano pepper and can have less heat. It is delicious when added to Pico de Gallo, salads, and salsas! Add a few chopped up to your pickled hot pepper recipe for a colorful mix.

This plant produces good yields of 3" long by 1" wide hot peppers with medium-thick flesh. The pods ripen in color from green to deep purple and then to red. Tall 24-36” plants have green fuzzy leaves.

Capsicum annuum (80 days)  Heirloom, open-pollinated

Heat Level: Very Hot Scoville: 15,000

~ packet contains 10 seeds.

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 green. If left on the plant a couple more weeks, the chiles will turn red at full maturity.

All of our seeds are GMO-free.
