This rare variation of the 7 Pot pepper family yields a dark brown to almost deep purple color and is sometimes thought to be related to the 7 Pot Brown. As the plant grows, you will notice the pepper begins as a green pepper before maturing to the dark color of the 7 Pot Douglah, and will form into a bumpy or dimpled surface.
The pepper grows to about 2 inches long and is habanero-shaped when fully ripe. The flavoring is like many of the other 7 Pots with considerable heat and fruitiness, but this pepper also has a bit of nuttiness which goes well when paired with earthy soups, chilis, and salsas. The 7 Pot varieties are named for the ability to spice up 7 pots of stew with one pod.
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.Read more information on how to harden off and transplant pepper plants in 6 steps.
