The Morita Pepper is a smoked, fiery, red-ripe pepper that you can use to create any kind of authentic dish.  In Spanish, Morita means “little blackberry” or “pepper blackberry,” and this pepper has an interesting flavor.  It is like the chipotle pepper, except the Morita Chili Peppers are colored dark red/purple and are smoked for less time which leaves them softer and retains their fruity flavor.  The chipotle pepper will color to a tan color.  Used primarily in Mexican cuisines, the dried Morita Chiles is a mix of fruity and smokey with some mild spice.  Some say they taste tones of raspberry, cherry, and tomato!  The Morita grows to one to two inches tall and ripens from green to red.

Morita peppers 100% germination

Planted 6 morita seeds using an aerogarden. All 6 resulted in plants which have been transplanted into soil and appear to be healthy after two weeks outside. I would buy from pepper Joe's again.

Everyone who tries this pepper asks for more. It is hot and flavorful. The plant is beautiful and was easy to grow in my North Texas garden.
