Plant: After last frost

Capsicum fructescens

50 seeds/pack   |   95 days   |   Heirloom

Heralding from Peru, this completely purple plant yields dark purple to almost black peppers.  The up-pointed fruits are mildly hot, meaning you can actually put one or two in a salsa and not get blown out of the kitchen! It really is quite a striking plant whose compact nature lends it to patio gardens.  These peppers do need a long season to fully mature.  Watch as the fruits turn from dark purple to burgundy red when mature.
