Wherever you decide to put these Little Elf pepper plants – in your garden, on the porch, on a shelf – you’ll enjoy the colorful beauty that these plants display. Another ornamental plant coming all the way from Hungary, the Little Elf plants are guaranteed to light up your home during the holiday season and beyond!

Watch as these compact plants grow to around a foot tall and bloom white flowers along with brilliantly vibrant fruits. Some Little Elf peppers ripen from a simple light green to yellow, while others will change further to a purple, then to orange, and finally to a bright red when they mature. Pods are shaped like mini-Christmas lights and have a very thin flesh.

Unlike some ornamental peppers, Little Elf peppers have a slight earthy taste to them which pairs well with rustic dishes and provides a smoky taste to different soups, salsas, and hot sauces. Their heat is similar to a Serrano pepper, so if you like a little kick to your foods, you can also add them to fresh salads, sandwiches, or other dishes.

  • 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.
