Chinese Five-Color Pepper (Capsicum annuum)

These little peppers are ?! A phenomenal addition to anything that needs a little kick of hear. Nice flavor, and burns just right. These will definitely be in my garden next year. The flowers and bouquet of peppers you get are an added bonus. Very showy plant that every gardener should have.
