The iconic Peter Pepper was given its name for its...well...unique shape. This novelty pepper has lived in infamy for quite some time, making people blush when they catch a glance at these pods. In fact, there have been countless other TV and Newspaper folks and Celebrities that have had the same astonished reaction.

Peter Pepper plants will shoot up to 3 ft. tall and produce loads of these 4-6" long average-sized peppers. As the name implies, this "guy" is shaped very realistically - so much so that it was judged as the "most pornographic pepper" by the Organic Gardening Magazine. This heirloom chili is absolutely the novelty of your garden. 

Besides being a real conversation piece, let me tell you, this pepper is super tasty. It has a thick fleshy pod that is fairly hot with a unique spicy flavor. The pepper is rumored to be an aphrodisiac in South America. I don't know if that's true, but we all know the many health benefits of eating hot peppers. Loaded with Vitamins A and C, Peter is sure to become a favorite. Everybody needs to try to grow this least once.

Peter pepper seeds

Every seed came up. Looking forward to seeing peppers again soon. Second year buyer. Success every time. Will buy again next year if I forget to save my seeds.

There what I wanted and more germinated than I needed. Good job

Great pepper

Like most people, I bought these for the novelty shape, but I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor. They're nice and hot, with lovely, savory taste that reminds me of black pepper, or maybe a good curry. Really great pepper!

Germination period

I still have no sign of peppers. Not the Peter peppers or the hot pepper seeds. Should I reorder ? Please advise.

Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85* and can take up to 6 weeks to germinate. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!
