If your kids love candy canes, they will get a kick out of these peppers! It is called Candy Cane because it’ll develop into red and white stripes that create that candy cane appearance. From the looks of it, you may think it’s an ornamental pepper plant that is only to decorate your garden, patio, or balcony. It does look beautiful when decorated, but the peppers are also edible!

The Candy Cane pepper is uniquely striped and elongated that grows to 3-5" long. Its maturation stage is different from other peppers as it starts with green with white stripes before ripening to full red color with a whole range of colors in between. Like with other peppers, the longer you leave it on the plant, the sweeter it will become. With their gorgeous coloration and beautiful variegated leaves, the peppers stand out in your garden.

Not only that, but their sweet, mild flavors will also stand out in the kitchen! These are delicious and crispy snacking peppers that are great for eating with your favorite veggie dip or hummus. Plant the eye-catching Candy Cane pepper plant in a container on your patio or balcony and show off its pretty self!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.
