A Very Unique Ornamental.
105 Days. The Pumpkin Pepper is great for the serious fall crafter. It is a pepper, that when it’s dried, it takes the shape of a mini pumpkin. These small peppers look so much like real, miniature pumpkins that you’ll be fooled. They get hard, hold their shape and not mold when they are dried. The plants get 16-20" tall and if spaced 18 x 36" each plant can produce at least 35 fruit. The fruit ripen from green to red and if left in the field they bleach to a burnt orange. They take several light frosts in the fall without damaging the fruit. For easy drying, cut the plants and hang them up with the fruit attached.
Packets contain approximately 25 seeds.
Supplied as untreated seed.
