Organic Chinese Five-Color Hot Pepper
68 days to green harvest | 82 days to red fruit harvest | Capsicum annuum
Our dear friend Dan in Montreal loves growing these peppers! We now love growing them in the Finger Lakes, as well. And Friends, they’re gorgeous. Each plant has variegated green and yellow foliage tinged with violet with dozens of brilliantly-hued and righteously spicy peppers. With ten times the heat of a jalapeno on the Scoville Scale, Chinese Five-Color is perhaps boring for the serious heat freaks but plenty to work with for the rest of us.
