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!

Sprouted quickly!

I purchased 5 varieties of seeds including the Filius and a good 90% of all the seeds sprouted quite quickly and are going strong! I'm excited to start hardening them off and moving them outside to my garden. This is my first time growing any peppers and I'm excited to see how the rest of the process goes.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
