When Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, were they Purple Beauty Peppers? If “a peck” means “a bunch,” it’s possible. This compact plant produces pecks of 3" blocky beauties, with crispy texture and subtle, mild flavor. Fruit ripens from light green to deep plum while immature, to dark red with thick skin when fully ripe. Eat fresh, pickle a peck of them, or sauté with purple beans and watch the colors change as they get piping hot.

  • Very high yields
  • Mild, subtle flavor
  • Harvest any color
  • Good for containers
