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.
