Detailed Product Info

This African American heirloom variety was introduced to the commercial seed market after William Woys Weaver discovered it in his father's belongings. It was a gift to his father from Horace Pippin. Beautiful variegated leaves and fruits vary from dark green to white. Some plants are more deeply contrasted than others, and range a bit in height and sprawling habit. The fruits range from white to pale green as well before ripening red. Fish peppers have a medium heat.

Growing Instructions

Start indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost in very warm spot (80 degrees is ideal). Keep seedlings in a well-ventilated place at 70+ degrees and do not over water. Transplant outdoors in full sun into rich, well drained soil after threat of frost has passed. Peppers can tolerate dryness and heat, but need moderate water to produce fruit and prefer to be watered at the base.
