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!

Quick Service and Actual Growth

I actually received the product unlike another I company I bought from and they have actually started growing (again, a big improvement from the other company). However, they have just stopped growing and I'm not sure if they are strong enough to be transplanted. But I think that is probably something I am doing wrong.

Ronnie Scolton
Quite pleased

My seeds came up about 60-70% I only wanted a few so I thi ned them down to the best seedlings. I have pinched all but one they are beginning to branch. The plants are VERY healthy they like the worm castings. Leaves are big waxy and shiny. I'm quite pleased so far!

I’ll let you in the spring!

Seed finally came, I can’t believe that the USPS took two weeks to deliver a first class order. I know that it shouldn’t matter, won’t be grown till spring time, it’s just the ridiculousness of it.

Thanks for sharing your feedback. Sorry about that delivery delay. Glad they arrived!
