Straight out of Central and South America comes this unique and flavorful hot pepper. The Manzano Orange Pepper is sweet but with a nice kick! Manzano means apple in Spanish and when you see them you’ll understand why.

The chili plant itself resembles an apple tree and produces 1-2" peppers that, wait for it…look and even kinda feel like apples. If protected from frost, the Manzano Plant can grow up to ten to fifteen feet long. This orange variety of the Manzano Pepper ripens from green to a warm orange, has furry leaves, and black (yes, black!) seeds. The Manzano Pepper Plant is resistant to low temperatures, adapting well to 45-60 degrees Fahrenheit and performs well in partial shade. 

These beauties are sweet, tangy, and oh-so juicy but with some heat that builds slowly. You can do just about anything with these amazing hot peppers – stuff ‘em, make a sauce or paste, or just snack on them raw. Whatever you do, we know you’re going to love them!

Interesting peppers not at Home Depot

If you want Chilies other than the big three at your home improvement store, you need to grow from seeds. These aren’t easy to germinate. Wet them in paper towels for two days, use a heater pad and seed starter mix, and hope 50% become strong plants. Night temps under 45 F will stunt them. But the reward is 🌶 your friends have never seen. Become the chili whisperer. You can do this!

no germination

did not get a single sprout from these seeds. waste of money

Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85* and can take up to 6 weeks to germinate. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!

good germination

I was a little worried about these seeds, everyone claims they are hard to germinate but that was not the case.

Extremely fast!

Put in an order and literally 20 minutes later it was shipped. Other places were sold out of the Manzano and I'm glad they were or I wouldn't have discovered Pepper Joe. Very happy and got 15 free mystery seeds. I can't wait to plant them and see what we got. Will definitely recommend and purchase more! From what I've learned panting these in the past they don't tolerate heat like other peppers
