Mad Hatter Peppers won the All-American Selections (AAS) award at the 2018 Fall Garden Festival! And it isn't hard to see why: this exotic pepper plant produces early, has high yields, and is an all-around unique pepper!

These pepper plants will grow up to 4 ft. tall and produce interesting-looking pods that grow 2" long and have a bell shape that makes them look like little hats, with the bottoms coming together like little balloon knots. Mad Hatters ripen from green to their bright red color at maturity, with smooth skin and a nice, crisp texture.

While these peppers look dangerously hot, the Mad Hatter peppers are surprisingly sweet with a nice mellow heat! Expect refreshingly sweet and citrusy notes from these pods. Mad Hatter Pepper seeds will grow peppers best used in salads, pickled, and even stuffed with cheese!

Getting Started

Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • 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.
