If you ask us what is one of our favorite ornamental pepper plants to grow, the Chinese 5 Color is at the top of the list! The Chinese 5 Color Pepper Plant grows over 4 ft. tall and produces over 100 peppers per plant on average. With its many hues, this plant is a real show stopper that brings in shades of purple and cream in the garden. Compact and easy to grow, these peppers mature like a rainbow in five colors and gain in heat as they change color, turning from cream, purple, yellow, orange, and finally red. The Chinese 5 Color Pepper is a small, conical, ornamental type pepper that grows to about 1" in length and provides a sweet yet bitter flavor with an earthy aftertaste. These are great to eat raw and cooked such as boiling, stir-frying, and roasting. You can even make salsa, dips, and hot sauces!

Your Shishito peppers were great. The fish and Chinese 5 color are alive but not doing that well.
