The Costa Rican pepper is an award-winning European chili that packs a punch, and is one of the most beautiful plants you can grow!

The Costa Rican chili pepper is perfect for growing in containers and in gardens, and you can expect the Costa Rican pepper plant to grow to 2-3 feet tall. With beautiful black foliage, color-shifting chilis, purple flowers, and thick-walled flesh, it's no wonder why this gem is a favorite. The Costa Rican sweet pepper is beautiful, but it is also effortless to grow and maintain. You can use it as a landscape feature in pots or multi-planted garden beds as a border hedge.

The Costa Rican pepper will ripen from purple to red and has that slight kick to burn your tongue before tasting tangy flavors. These chilis are little fireballs that are bursting with flavor and we highly encourage you to give these a try! They will add fire and color to the food you create in the kitchen.

Love these

Looking like peppers will be coming in soon! The germination rate was great, and the plants produced have all done really well. Growing in containers and above ground planters.
