Chinese 5 Color Hot Pepper is a real show stopper that brings in shades of purple and cream in the garden. Compact and easy to grow, these peppers mature like a rainbow in five colors and gain in heat as they change color, turning from cream, purple, yellow, orange, and finally red. “5-color” is in the name, so it’s no surprise how they transition to 5 different colors! The Chinese 5 Color Pepper is a small, conical, ornamental type pepper that grows to about an inch in length and provides a sweet yet bitter flavor with an earthy aftertaste. The Chinese 5 Color Pepper Plant grows over 4 feet tall and produces over 100 peppers per plant on average. These are great to eat raw and cooked, such as boiling, stir-frying, and roasting. You can even make salsa, dips, and hot sauces! 80-90 DAYS.Heat Level: 5,000-50,000 Scoville heat units

In early spring, start seeds indoors eight weeks before warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart, or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest peppers when they are full-size and orange.
