UCPS Grown Chinese 5 Color Pepper Plant

Chinese 5 Color 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 gains in heat as they change color, turning from cream, purple, yellow, orange, and finally red. 

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!

Heat Level: 5,000-50,000 Scoville heat units
