A relative to the Habanero pepperthis heirloom chili pepper known as the Mushroom Red Cap is a fast-maturing hot pepper that has a nice aroma and grows into a unique mushroom shape, hence its name. Some have described the weird shape as similar to a patty pan, so it's sometimes referred to as a Squash Pepper.  

Red Mushroom pepper plants grow about 24” tall and the fruit grows to about the size of a golf ball, 2-3" in size. The Mushroom Red Cap will grow from green to red when matured and is thin-skinned, making it great for a spicy powder. Best grown in warmer climates between 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit 

Recommended for garnishes, pickling, or drying.

Worked for me

I ordered a ten pack of seeds awhile back and honestly didn't think anything would come from it. I had one seedling grow and is now at about 2 feet and producing several peppers all over the plant. Its been one of my healthiest and strongest plants so far!

Awesome! Keep up the good work!

To the reviewer below

Most people who know anything about peppers, know that scotch bonnets are between the 100,000-250,000 scoville range. That is all...

I dont get it

Isnt this just a scotch bonnet? I feel like pepper joes is making things up. I've gotten the wrong seeds from them in the past and this one is just confusing
