Pepper (Hot) - Pretty Purple 🔥🔥🔥🔥

$329 USD


An edible ornamental, the Pretty Purple Pepper loves an audience. Compact plants produce an ensemble of 1"-2" tapered fruits that lift their tips in a glorious chorus line of mini rockets, going through several costume changes in green, purple, yellow, orange, and red. The show goes on when you bite into one. With a searing purple heat in tune with the Habaneros and the Scotch Bonnets, you’ll be singing and dancing in your own Broadway musical. Assemble several plants to choreograph a border, or give one the spotlight in a nice container/pot, and let it audition for your next spicy production.

The Purple Cayenne Pepper is just as purple and pretty, but with less drama.
