Between its jaw-dropping pastel colors and strong tolerance for heat, drought, wind, and rain – it’s no wonder NuMex Easter was a 2014 All-America Award Winner. Add in the fact that NuMex Easter is early maturing and compact enough to grow in containers, and you’ve got a pepper worth growing! As an ornamental, NuMex Easter doesn’t disappoint with small pointed peppers that grow upwards and develop Easter-like purple, yellow, orange, and cream colors. NuMex Easter plants grow just 8-10 inches high and about 10 inches wide, allowing a wide variety of planting applications and visual enjoyment. NuMex Easter peppers are certainly ornamental, but also edible with a nice kick of heat. Try them in salsa!
