Melrose Hot Pepper Seeds

Seeds

Growing around four to six inches, the sweet, rich, flavorful Melrose Pepper is a great addition to your delicious meals. A family emigrated from Italy brought with them their Melrose pepper seeds, grew their roots in Suburban Chicago, and the rest is history! Although they have mild heat, they are a versatile pepper in the kitchen with a ton of culinary options! Their sweetness and thin skins make it a great pepper to eat fresh, roast, fry, and stuff.  You can even pair them with rice dishes and cook them into tomato sauces! These peppers turn from green to crimson red when mature. The flavor becomes more intense when they ripen for a longer period.

Melrose peppers

I look forward to growing these peppers. I was born in Chicago. I was raised in California but would go back every year to family and friends and eat these great peppers. Being Italian , those were great memories I want to recover.

Melrose Peppers

One of our family favorites. We use the Melrose in a variety of dishes and salads. We ordered the seeds from Pepper Joe and the seedlings are sprouting . Every seed we used has started to come up. Very happy with my purchase and will be back for more!

Terrible experience

Sorry, but the "Melrose pepper seeds I got do not "pack zero heat". They're hot. Not like jalapenos, but they're definitely hot. Plus, they only grow to about 3 in long and 3/4 in across. Some are short, squat and wrinkly, but most are long and narrow. I'm going to pitch the plants. What a huge disappointment after all that effort. I know I'm not the only customer who's made these remarks because customer service has admitted it and says it's being investigated, but I sure wouldn't buy Melrose pepper seeds from Pepper Joe's right now.

Hello, our Melrose are putting off a tad more heat than we expected. Please reach out to our customer service team and provide pictures, they would be happy to help! Thank you!
