Chinese 5 Color Pepper Plant

Chinese 5 Color Pepper

This is a gorgeous pepper plant with spicy little peppers, and beautiful purple flowers. It clocks in at 50,000 Scoville, the same as Cayenne Peppers. The colorful flowers are a nice change from the standard white pepper flowers, and when the sun shines through the leaves you can clearly make out the drops of nectar surrounding the filaments. After purple they change to cream, then yellow, then orange, and finally red.

The plants are on the sturdier side, not requiring any support, grow to 2.5 feet tall and the peppers are less than 1.5 inches long. I’m growing this indoors in my self watering container setup.
