Looking for a juicy sweet pepper to grow in a cooler climate? The Lipstick pepper is an excellent pepper to grow for those who live in shorter warm seasons, and to cook in the kitchen! 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 into cone-shaped or heart-shaped pods with tapered ends. The red heirloom is a favorite for gardeners and foodies because of their extra-sweet, fruity flavors and aromatic smells of earthy, vegetal scents when sliced open. With peppers maturing to just 70 days, they will be ready to harvest early especially in areas with cooler summers. After all, the Lipstick pepper plant was developed as a cold-tolerant variety for cold regions, and they’re dependable and extremely heavy producers.

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! 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 with aged cheese, potatoes, tomatoes, beans, and a variety of meat like beef, lamb, goat, pork, and shellfish.

Fun Fact: 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.
