Details

This beautiful plant produces an abundance of peppers that grow upright in clusters. The peppers turn from purple, to yellow, to orange, to red when mature. An excellent container plant or to use in landscapes for its ornamental properties. At 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville heat units, NuMex Twilight peppers fall at the same level as cayenne and tabasco peppers on the Scoville scale. At the end of the season, we cut the plants at the base and hang them upside down to dry for use all winter long! Non-Isolated.
