Product Details

This is the coolest sweet pepper you've ever seen! Even the variegated foliage is attractive, but the peppers will continue to wow you as they ripen from green and white stripes to the chocolate red and cream stripes in their name. Grow them in a container on your patio or balcony to enjoy the view! Small, 1 ½" peppers are crisp and sweet; slice rings into your salads for a beautiful presentation, or slice long strips for stir frying.
