The Fish pepper is quite an eye-catching, all-around beautiful pepper! Its wonderful flavors were kept as a secret ingredient throughout the Caribbean; however, it was eventually released to the public growing community by William Woys Weaver back in 1995.

Fish pepper plants are productive and produce high yields of these brilliant fruits. Very easy to grow in gardens and containers, they can also be wonderful ornamental pepper plants with pretty variegated leaves and colorful pods. Fish peppers have a beautiful ripening stage as they start a creamy white color, changing into a light green with dark green stripes and markings, to a vibrant orange with dark red and brown streaks.

The name is most likely correlated to the chili's popular use with seafood. The variegated Fish Pepper was traditionally used in oyster and crab houses in the northeastern United States. Fish chili peppers are a feast for the eyes with the colorful young cream-colored peppers that were used for adding a kick to the creamy sauces that topped seafood. With heat and flavor similar to the Jalapeño and Cayenne, you’ll fall in love with this gem.

My seeds germinated faster than some other pepper seeds and once in the ground bloomed and I have peppers already!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • 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.
