Capsicum annuum

We can enjoy the Northern Lights in Idaho just by gazing at this hot beauty!

One of the most beautiful peppers we've ever grown, this compact, 15" tall gem grows fat, 1" long, purple peppers from gorgeous lavender flowers that ripen through the rainbow to red. Pleasantly hot flavor, unbelievably hot looks! OP.

Seeds grown by Earthly Delights Farm in Boise, Idaho and Swift River Farm in Salmon, Idaho.

30 seeds.

Indigenous people in modern day Mexico domesticated chiles from their wild crop ancestor the Chiltepin thousands of years ago, adapting it into so many unique and delicious varieties. When the European colonizers came, they took chiles back to Europe, referring to them as peppers because of their spicy flavor, which reminded them of peppercorns. Now chiles are beloved and cultivated by cultures all over the world, and despite the devastating legacy of colonization, the descendants of their original seed stewards continue to persist and cultivate them today.

Directions: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before last frost. Use bottom heat to aid germination and be patient. Transplant after frost.
