The Dragon's Toe Pepper comes to us all the way from Southern China. This uniquely wrinkly hybrid pepper has an excellent flavor and pungency used in a lot of different fresh or cooked Asian foods.

Dragon's Toe pepper plants grow an abundance of these wrinkly pods that stretch as far as 5" long. Pods will change colors from green to red and have a distorted pendant shape to them when they reach maturity. This is an unusual variety that looks incredibly stunning and can be a great ornamental addition to your garden or patio.

The flavor of the Dragon's Toe Pepper is incredibly sweet, but with a kick. This pepper can get pretty hot, with heat levels soaring up to 100,000 SHUs! They make a great addition to stir fry or salads, as well as roasted or grilled. Give them a try – you won’t regret it!

Dragon’s Toe Pepper Seeds

Seeds look good, can’t wait to plant them in the spring.

Great Purchase

Overall, I am highly satisfied and intend to purchase exclusively from Pepper Joe for all of my Pepper Seed needs. (probably again for the coming season).

I am growing several different peppers and all of the seeds I purchased from Pepper Joe have reliably sprouted and are currently growing healthily. Along with the Dragon's Toe, I am also growing Mad Hatter, Yellow Mushroom, Datil, 7 Pot Merlot, and a Cheiro Roxa (which is absolutely beautiful). Additionally Pepper Joe kindly (or sadistically maybe lol.) sent me 15 "mixed" superhot pepper seeds, of which I am currently growing 3 because I need to know what they are, and yes I do intend to try all of my peppers, and yes, I know some of them are a little hot 🔥.

(I would add photos but I don't see anyway to do that.)
