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.

Daniel M.
10 Bought. 80% Germination Success.

I am very excited about these since they will make both great colors like flowers, and excellent heat for a bit of spice in my life. 8/10 germinated successfully, definitely going to rely on Joe for the spicy peppers because they are already sprouted in the aerogarden; it's been about 2 weeks. The rest are in the soil. Good luck to me and to everyone else. Also, the package came a couple of days early, a pleasant surprise.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
