Do you wish to have peppers that sparkle like a rainbow in your garden? It’s time to stop dreaming and get your hands on the colorful, eye-catching, gorgeous NuMex Twilight pepper ! The ornamental NuMex Twilight pepper plant produce beautiful pods that are said to be a saltier, bitter taste, but these aren’t really made to be for tasting as the flavors are less than admirable. These are one of the prettiest plants that you’ll grow when colors are shifting, so why grow flowers when you can grow these peppers instead? The NuMex Twilight Chili will mature like a rainbow, aging from purple to yellow, orange, then finally red. At a heat level of 30,000-50,000 SHUs, these peppers are similar to Cayenne and Tabasco peppers’ heat levels.
This Numex pepper is a chili hybrid created at New Mexico State University and is a hybrid of the Thai ornamental pepper. The Thai ornamental is a much hotter pepper ranging from 50,000-100,000 SHUs, but it doesn’t start off with that same beautiful purple hue as the NuMex Twilight. You can grow this variety to decorate your windowsill, balcony, patio, or garden!
