Pepper (Hot) - Firecracker 🔥🔥🔥

$199 USD

The edible ornamental Firecracker Pepper sends showy clusters of 1" tapered fruit up and out, like a Roman candle, producing bursts of white, green, lavender, yellow, orange, and red, as it moves into full ripeness. When you get past the sensation that you’ve just eaten a flare, you’ll taste some fruitiness. Adds a sparkle of color and spiciness to any dish or marinade.
