Pepper, Hot, McMahon's Bird Pepper

Medium-hot heirloom peppers with a pedigree that goes right back to Thomas Jefferson.
A tangy hot pepper that's rich in flavor and history. Producing tiny, shiny, round-red peppers, this variety was introduced in 1813 by Bernard McMahon from seeds given to him by Thomas Jefferson who was, as you may know, an accomplished plantsman. Striking and decorative, the 12" plants are ideal candidates for indoor or outdoor containers. The medium-hot fruits can be strung like cranberries and dried. Plants can be overwintered indoors. Harvest about 90 days from transplant.
