Looking for a juicy sweet pepper to grow in a cooler climate? Lipstick peppers are rumored to be named for their elongated shapes and vibrant red color which looks like the appearance of the famous cosmetic item. Favored for their thick flesh and sweet flavor, these peppers are great to use as a culinary ingredient! The Lipstick pepper is a variety of Pimento pepper, which is a non-spicy cultivar that is known to have one of the lowest Scoville ratings of any pepper.

The Lipstick pepper plant was developed as a cold-tolerant variety for cold regions, and they’re dependable and extremely heavy producers. The peppers will grow to 4 inches long with a crisp, crunchy flesh and smooth, taut, shiny skin. Ripening from green to bright red, they will form cone-shaped or heart-shaped pods with tapered ends. With peppers maturing to just 70 days, they will be ready to harvest early, especially in areas with cooler summers. The Lipstick pepper is an excellent pepper to grow for those who live in shorter warm seasons, and to cook in the kitchen!

The red heirloom is a favorite for gardeners and foodies because of its extra-sweet, fruity flavors and aromatic smells of earthy, vegetal scents when sliced open. They are excellent to eat raw, and for cooked applications like roasting, frying, and baking. Lipstick peppers are great for stuffed peppers, sauces, salsas, relishes, and salads, but we recommend you roast them to compliment aged cheese, potatoes, tomatoes, beans, and a variety of meat like beef, lamb, goat, pork, and shellfish.

A great pepper for northern gardeners, but very hard to find.
The people at Pepper Joe’s went above and beyond helping with the delivery!
