I grow peppers for the ornamental beauty as well as to eat them.

Thanks, Sherie!


I'll soon have tons of seeds for that beautiful tri-colored variety. Remind me, and I'll share some with you too!

That's really sweet of you HBL, thanks so much for offering, but I'm already so swamped with seeds. I'm still working my way through all my 2013 seeds I've been trying to get to, lol!

So you can see how cute and compact it is, here is my "purple flash" hot pepper plant today...






It's classified as an ornamental but the fruits are more than hot and edible.


My plant is getting ready to produce a crop. I'll show close-up shots when it does.

Thanks, Raccoon! It's a tri-colored variety.


The great thing about growing pepper plants inside is that your seeds don't get cross-pollinated, so they're always true to the parent plants. Outdoors, you cannot guarantee the seeds to be true if you're growing many different pepper plants in the area.

WinkThanks you.


Has anyone ever grown, or heard of, mini orange habaneros?


Apparently they are the smallest habs you can grow and they are very unique and special. Someone shared a few seeds with me and I sowed a couple last night!!!

I am growing a cherry pepper plant. The cherry pepper is what pimentos are made of. It claims it's mildly hot...claims. I cut open one that was getting too soft to save the seeds and out of curiosity I smelled it...you know to Guage the scent of hotness. It smelled like a sweet red bell pepper. My next step? I licked it. BAD IDEA. It was HOT!! Like drool inducing hot.
Good pepper in my book. It will o lyrics take one for a batch of salsa. HA!

Hot cherry peppers are wonderful....so great you're growing them, Gardennerd! I have seeds for them too.


Today, I'm sowing seeds for a type called "masquerade". It's ornamentally gorgeous and the fruits are mildly hot. I've grown it before.
