It’s time to stop dreaming and get your hands on the colorful, eye-catching, gorgeous NuMex Twilight pepper! This was created at New Mexico State University and is a hybrid of the Thai ornamental pepper, but with less heat and more beauty.

The ornamental NuMex Twilight pepper plant produces beautiful, tiny pods that reach 1" in length. These tiny bulbs have smooth skin and mature like a rainbow, aging from purple to yellow, orange, then finally red. 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?

At a heat level of 30,000-50,000 SHUs, these peppers are similar to Cayenne and Tabasco peppers’ heat levels. You can grow this variety to decorate your windowsill, balcony, patio, or garden! The Numex Twilight peppers 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.

Good germination! Planted on March 3, 10 of the 12 seeds sprouted - all within a couple of weeks - and they are healthy and getting their second set of leaves. I had to start them indoors, as we can't plant outside until mid May. The other seeds I ordered from you are all doing well, also. Thank you!

Looking forward to my peppers

I’m familiar with the datil pepper and appreciate you carrying the seeds. I’m a Florida native and love St. Augustine where the datil pepper is held in high esteem! I’ve grown them in the past and will be starting seedlings soon.

The multi colored peppers are reminiscent of plants my uncle grew near his front door. I look forward to using the plants as accents around our Florida home.

I’m familiar with the challenge of starting peppers and low germination rates, but I’m expecting good results from your seeds.
