The Purple Tiger is one of our most anticipated rare and exotic pepper seeds, and it’s easy to see why. These plants contain excellent ornamental qualities but bear some one-of-a-kind fruits that can be used in a variety of different ways.

These plants are short and compact, barely reaching 2 ft. in height. Pods will reach around 1” in length and start green before changing to a rare purple color with red stripes, then finally to its mature red color. This change makes Purple Tiger pepper plants a fascinating ornamental variety, but it also has its uses in the kitchen.

The heat levels of Purple Tigers are 2-4 times hotter than Jalapeno peppers. Their chili-hot flavor can be useful to make sauce, cook with other meats and vegetables, or ground up into a chili pepper powder.

  • What You'll Need

    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.
