Munching on the Mariachi Peppers will taste like music to your taste buds! You guessed right; this pepper is named after the Mexican musical band.
The Mariachi is a beautiful plant that grows well in sunny locations and is a family-friendly pepper plant because the peppers are mild. So, you can be safe knowing that when friends and family come over for gatherings and parties, they will not be eating spicy peppers that’ll burn their tongues! What is even better is that the peppers look gorgeous in your garden or backyard. The plant will produce pods that ripen from creamy white, yellow, pink rose, to then red. We recommend tasting the Mariachi peppers when it matures to a creamy white color because it’ll have a delicate, complex flavor with fruity undertones reminiscent of melons!
The Mariachi pepper plant is very productive and will quickly grow 4-inch conical peppers with smooth skins, meaty flesh, and tapered tips. They are less spicy than the Jalapeno, but both peppers are quite meaty, so you can stuff the peppers. Use these peppers in salsas and sauces, eat them when fresh, or roast and grill them! Also, you can also use these as a substitute for jalapeno poppers.
