Open Pollinated 85 Days
A dramatic and beautiful ornamental and edible hot pepper with dark purple (almost black) stems and leaves, and the flowers are violet. Grow in full sun for best color. Small, conical, up-facing hot peppers color from black-purple to red when ripe. Heat can measure from 5,000 to 30,000 Scoville units, varying from plant to plant and pod to pod. Plants are compact and bushy, growing to 2’ tall, and make spectacular patio container plants which can be over-wintered in the house or in a greenhouse.
