This pepper is HOT! A great plant for beginning gardeners, Chili Peppers need little attention and grow easily. Invasive in some environments, these bushy pepper plants produce upright growing, tapered pepper that progressively turn from green to red or orange when they are ready for harvest. One plant can quickly produce tons of these spicy little two inch pods, so you'll have a peck of peppers for picking in no time!
Try growing Chili Peppers to bring a fiesta to your kitchen or patio. Great for adding some fire to your favorite salsa, sauce, or oil. The lingering hot taste of the Chili Pepper is also very flavorful when pickled or dried. For a great mix of Mexican flavors, plant Cilantro and Epazote alongside your Tabascos and enjoy the fresh, flavorful taste of the Southwest!
