Pepper (Hot) - NuMex, Twilight 🔥🔥🔥 (HYBRID)

$199 USD

The NuMex Twilight Pepper may be slow to mature, but when it does, it’s full of surprises. Small 2" fruits start out purple rather than green, then ripen through yellow, orange, and red. The peppers point up toward the sky, like flowers, and all four colors adorn the compact 1'-2' plant at the same time, turning this edible ornamental into a living bouquet of salty, slightly bitter peppers so blistering hot, you’ll want to report them to the sheriff. Plant several close together as a border, or grow one in a special pot on the patio. Use as you would any other criminally hot pepper.
