Pepper, Hot, Fish

An African-American heirloom pepper that's one of the prettiest, tastiest peppers you'll ever meet.
You may have encountered (and savored) this heirloom pepper in the oyster and crab houses around the Chesapeake Bay. One of the prettiest peppers ever to grace our test gardens, this African-American heirloom predates the 1870s. Boasting handsome, variegated foliage, the 18-24" plants produce 2-3" long pendant fruits. Starting out an unusual cream color striped with green, the fruits ripen to orange with brown stripes, before turning all red. An attractive, attention-getting choice for containers. Harvest about 80 days from transplant.
