Introducing the Purple Death Pepper! It is a super hot pepper with a Scoville heat level of 800,000 to 1,500,000 SHU. Developed by Italian growers, this extraordinary pepper is a cross between the 7 Pot Primo pepper and the Purple Ghost pepper

Purple Death plants grow from about 2.5" to 3.5" tall. The plants are bushy and very productive. They produce pods that are about 1.5" big. The plants, characterized by dark foliage and exquisite purple flowers, add a unique touch to any garden. This is a must grow for all you chili heads out there!

Resembling the Carolina Reaper, the Purple Death Pepper stands out from the crowd. It starts off growing bold purple pods that mature into a fiery red color. Both beautiful and delicious, the Purple Death Pepper has a fruity flavor combined with extreme heat. It is an ideal choice for crafting spicy salsas or hot sauces.

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • 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.
