Red Hot Cherry Pepper (Capsicum annuum)
These hot, spicy, and slightly sweet cherry peppers will ripen from green to ruby red; we pick them when they are deep red for full flavor. Sturdy plants are loaded with 1 ½” round fruits. Delicious pickled, in salsa, roasted, on veggie board, and for poppers!
