Medusa pepper seeds produce narrow, twisted and upright growing peppers that resemble the snake hair of Medusa in Greek mythology. This suitably named variety is an excellent ornamental pepper for mass plantings, outdoor containers and even indoor pots. Its non-pungent fruit is an excellent choice for those who find the oils of other ornamental peppers unsuitable for their market. It is also safe to plant in areas that children visit. The narrow, twisted cone-shaped fruit are held well above a tight, compact habit. Fruit initiate as an ivory color, turning yellow, then orange and finally red. All 4 colors can be displayed on one plant at the same time, creating quite a funky look.

The plant's fruit is edible and serves as a sweet alternative to bell peppers. Ornamental Medusa peppers are mildly hot and have a heat level ranging from 1 to 1000 Scoville heat units. Being tropical plants, these colorful peppers grow well in sunny and warm conditions. It is best to plant the seeds in spring or early summer. The fruit stores well, making it suitable for use for longer periods.
