Do you live in a northern climate? Do you love super-hot peppers? If you answered, “yes” to both, then you gotta try the Hot Paper Lantern! Great for growing in northern climates, this pendant shaped pepper hails from Peru and is reminiscent of habaneros – just as hot but tends to be slightly sweeter before the heat really kicks in, mixed with some light smokiness. The Hot Paper Lantern is usually 2-4 inches long and ripens from lime green to orange, and finally to bright orange/red. They have a thin stem, so be careful when picking that the plant isn’t damaged. This pepper also has a very thin skin which makes it great for drying. Use for seasoning, salsas, hot sauce and even roasting. Be careful though, these are known for being blistering hot!
