Pepper (Hot) - Purple Tiger 🔥🔥

$299 USD


Exotic and rare, the Purple Tiger Pepper draws you to its lair with foliage in variegated colors of white, green, and purple. Slowly, slowly you’re mesmerized by the 1"-2" tapered fruit that starts off green, creeping to purple with a lighter, rosy striped pattern that ripens fully to red. And then it pounces with a low growl of heat, twice as hot a jalapeño. Stuff with cream cheese for some purple poppers, or pickle a peck of them to sprinkle on nachos.

Hunting for a heat that roars? Try the Chocolate Habanero Pepper.
