Item #138344, 10 seeds

on this item


Very rare, extremely productive. A chameleon-like pepper that undergoes color changes during ripening, from iridiscent violet to pinkish in color, then orange changing to brown, and eventually to a deep red. The long, round, tapered pods undergo a unique flavor change as they ripen as well, with the reds being more sweet and meatier than the violet. The heat level is that of a Thai chile. The stunning plants also make wonderful potted ornamental specimens. Occasionally, you’ll be surprised by a mutation of a half-orange/half-purple pepper! Because of the copious yields, staking is recommended. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
