(a.k.a. Chinese Multi Color Pepper.) A fantastic pepper with amazing vibrant colors. Very decorative! Watch as the fruits ripen from dark purple to cream, yellow, orange and then red. Conical fruits adorn the plant and when in varying stages of ripeness make a dazzling ornamental. Foliage is dark green, blushed with purple. The fruits themselves are quite hot and useful for any standard pepper purpose. The plants also are great for containers inside. Just pick a few any time to liven up your salsa. Open pollinated. 80-90 days. Peppers can be grown all year long in containers. It is suitable for apartment dwellers and gardeners who live in cool regions where the number of growing days are limited. Germination I recommend to soak the seeds for 24 hours in a glass of water (change water every 12 hours) and use "Paper Towel Method of Germinating" method to germinate the seeds. Paper Towel Method of Germinating Place seeds on 1/2 of the paper towel, fold over seeds, wet paper towel, place in ziplock bag, leave unzipped, wait for tap roots then use toothpick to place in starter pot with soil. Keep the paper towel wet. How to Grow Start seeds in small containers from 8-10 weeks prior to the last frost date. Plant seeds approximately 1/4-1/2" deep in moist, well drained potting soil. Most standard soil mixes are suitable for pepper seeds. Soil temperature must be kept at 75-90F for proper germination. Cool soil, particularly at night can inhibit or significantly delay germination. Additionally, overly warm soils, well above 90F, can inhibit germination and provide ideal conditions for seed rot. To keep soil temperature warm, start seeds indoors, in a greenhouse and/or use a seed starting heat mat. Keep soil moderately moist, though not overly, dripping wet. Water soil when the soil surface just begins to dry. Allow proper air circulation for containers.
