Each time we grow this pepper the productivity amazes us. This Korean red hot pepper adds the perfect amount of spice- Not too hot, but hot enough, it has thin red skins that dry easily for storage. Traditionally these are coarsely ground to make gochugaru, the dried red pepper flakes used in Kim Chi.

The compact plants are prolific producers of these 3-4 inch peppers and also produce well in cooler climates. The bushy plants can reach thigh high by seasons end and have a tendency to lodge, fall over, at this time so staking can be beneficial.
