Looking for an all-around beautiful pepper plant that produces wonderful tasting and a unique ripening stage? This pepper is the one for you! The Fish Pepper starts off a creamy white color, changing into a light green with dark green stripes, to a vibrant orange with dark red and brown streaks. The Fish Pepper was traditionally used in oyster and crab houses in the northeastern United States. The name "fish pepper" is most likely correlated to the Chile’s popular use with seafood. It is such a tasty, delicious pepper as its flavor is similar to the serrano which is like a fresh and bright pepper flavor!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
Fun Fact: this was a favorite during the late 19th and 20th centuries in Baltimore and the mid-Atlantic states!
