With its many hues, the Chinese 5 Color 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 gains in heat as they change color, turning from cream, purple, yellow, orange, and finally red. “5-color” is in the name, so it’s no surprise to how they transition to 5 different colors! The Chinese 5 Color Pepper is a small, conical, ornamental type pepper that grows to about an inch in length and provides a sweet yet bitter flavor with an earthy aftertaste. The Chinese 5 Color Pepper Plant grows over 4 feet tall and produces over 100 peppers per plant on average. These are great to eat raw and cooked such as boiling, stir-frying, and roasting. You can even make salsa, dips, and hot sauces!
