The Manzano Red is said to originate from Central and South America and is a unique pepper plant to grow. Manzano means apple in Spanish, and it is very similar to the apple. 

The chili plant looks like an apple tree, and the peppers look like apples in look and consistency when grown. Manzano pepper plants are resistant to low temperatures and adapt well to 45-60 degrees Fahrenheit, performing well in partial shade. What is more unique is the peppers have furry leaves and black seeds. Grown to about one to two inches in length and ripening from green to a warm orange color when mature, this Manzano Pepper is a great pepper if you want something sweet with a kick! 

The Red Manzano Pepper has a sweet, tangy, and juicy taste mixed with some heat.  It is firm and thick in consistency and will take a while to build until the spice suddenly kicks in and burns you. This is an excellent pepper for stuffing, making a sauce or paste, or sprinkling over your dinner.

I have ordered four different pepper varieties from them and the seeds have a great sprouting rate . They came well packaged and quite quickly . I’m sure if you’re looking for a more specialized pepper they are definitely where I would recommend. Thanks for the free seeds too . They also throw in some hot peppers seeds as a surprise they just say hot or super hot. That keeps it fun .

Jusr checked the seedling tray. 9 days after planting, 2 "super hot mystery" seeds and one Red Manzano have sprouted. On my way...

Received pepper seeds quicker I thought. Haven’t planted them yet. Visually they look good. We live in Southern California so we have a longer growing season. I will try to give an update on my progress.
