The Big Red Mama Pepper is a genius creation from the Horticulturist and grower Troy Pimeaux in the bayous of Louisiana. Her parents are the Naga Morich and Trinidad Douglah so you know she will deliver a kick.

Big Red Mama pepper plants will grow to around 4 ft. tall and will produce an abundance of these wrinkly, gnarly-looking 3" peppers. Pods will change colors from green to red as they mature.

These chili peppers taste fruity and a bit citrusy with a heat burst you will feel in the back of your throat for quite a while, but this will be less heat than the Big Black Mama! Step into the Bayou for a kick in the pants from Big Red Mama.

Great producer

Living in the northwest can be a challenge when growing super hots. We have a relatively short season so it takes some experimenting to find the ones that do best. The Red Hot Mama does not disappoint. Beautiful branching early on and started producing much earlier than the others I have planted. It also was the first that ripened. It is still the middle of August and I'm getting ripe peppers. I love this plant.

Packs a punch

I love trying new peppers, so I was excited when PepperJoe gave me some free Big Red Mama seeds with my purchase last year. I had never heard of this pepper prior, but they are fat delicious peppers that pack a nice punch of heat that any chilli lover will respect.

If you are looking to try a new pepper, I recommend this one.

Big red mama indeed!

First time pepper grower here that ordered these Big Red Mama seeds. I also ordered others and if you look through, you will see my name and somewhat duplicate reviews on different seeds. I had a very good propagation rate with these seeds. Of the 10+ that came in the package, it looks like 12 sprouted. I now have 7 strong plants growing and I hope to have a lot of fruit by the end of the summer.

Pepper seeds

The majority of my seeds germinated although only half of the Big Red Mama seeds spouted, 3 devil's brain sprouted, but 2 of them didn't drop the seed shell and molded. Hopefully the sole survivor makes it. All the jalapeño seeds germinated and most of the free super hots sprouted.

Poor reflex purchase

Germination rate was very good; but, charging $7 to ship 10 seeds is obscene. I paid more for shipping than for the seeds. I won't do that again.
