The Filius Blue pepper is a deceptively purple pepper with beautiful plant qualities and a unique flavor for an ornamental plant. Winning the RHS Award of Garden Merit, this reliable variety livens up your garden while providing very tasty fruits for different culinary uses.

Grow Filius Blue pepper plants that reach 2 ft. tall and produce high yields of deep blue/purple small fruits. These plants are beautiful and easy to grow, making them a great ornamental hedge variety. They also make for a great houseplant for container gardening and will be the talk of the show for their exotic looks. Filius Blue peppers will form into small lightbulb shapes and ripen from green to blue-purple, and then to a bright red color at maturity. They will surprisingly lose their heat as they ripen to red, so make sure to harvest this pepper during their blue-purple stage.

Can you eat this ornamental pepper, even though some ornamentals are bitter? Yes! The Filius Blue chili is very tasty with sweetness and a touch of heat. Grow this pepper and add some sizzle to your garden!

I planted maybe 6 seeds and only 3 of them came up and only one of them has blueish leaves! I wanna keep the regular colored ones but definitely what I'n after is the colored ones

So far so good

Soaked for a little longer than usual with a little hydrogen peroxide and they started to germinate on the heating pad around day 7. Pretty fast for peppers. Very excited for this set as it's a harder variety to find and exceptionally beautiful! Will be keeping one indoors as a houseplant. Really good customer service with thoughtful team and impressive selection. They sent tomato and cilantro seeds with my order to make salsa, both of which are sprouting and growing well. Will buy live plants here in spring.

Blue pepper seeds

Well I am still waiting . I have heat pads on 80° dome on 20 hours a day off 4 hours a day, mist 2 times a day water every time it gets a little dry. I started them the 1st of July and still no sprouts from the filius blue, the black pearl, or the fish pepper bought from the pepper joes shop. This time I will be getting a refund being I done exactly what they need to sprout. I will wait another month so there is no excuses from the joe crew. Last time they wanted the intire photosynthesis process from the temperature of the sun to the contents of water molecules. This time I documented everything. So the seeds get a 1 star for the pack it came in . Thanks for asking .
