Grow rare Morita peppers right in your own garden! With a rare look as if the peppers were smoked right off the plant, these pods surprisingly pack a lot of flavors! Also known as "little blackberry" or "pepper blackberry" in Spanish, these are a popular variety found in a lot of Mexican cuisines, and you'll be glad to have added this plant to your garden!

Morita pepper plants typically reach around 3 ft. tall and produce good yields of these small 2" skinny pods. Their raisin-like texture makes them look similar to Chipotle peppers, except the Morita Chili Peppers are colored dark red/purple and are smoked for less time which leaves them softer and retains their flavor. Watch these pods ripen from green to their red mature color when they're ready to be picked!

The Morita Pepper is a smoked, fiery, red-ripe pepper that you can use to create any kind of authentic dish. 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.

Awesome seeds! Seeds germinated fast! Just wondering what the real hot seeds are called as plants?

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.

A new favorite

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.
