Also known as the Bishop’s Hat pepper, Bishop's Cap, Christmas Bell, or Joker's Hat, the Bishops Crown peppers are spicy little chilis. They are named for their shape which appears as a bishop’s crown or a bell. The Bishop Crown plant will grow around 3 to 4 feet tall into a striking plant that is very impressive to grow for their easiness and looks! This variety typically enjoys warmer weather, so make sure to check the last frost date in your area before planting this outside.
The Bishop Crown Chili has an apple fruit flavor with sweetness and a little bit of heat to keep your tongue tingling. The pepper is great to snack on, as well as being very versatile in the kitchen to use for marinades, stuffing, hot sauces, jellies, salsas, and many more culinary uses. The pods will grow to 1.5 inches long and ripen from green to red. For similar variations of the Bishop’s Crown, check out the Mad Hatter pepper.
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.
