Grow some amazing-looking peppers with our Red Rocoto Pepper Plants, otherwise known as the Red Manzano plant. These seedlings will grow into 4 ft. tall pepper plants with hairy leaves, blue flowers, and vibrant pepper pods known as “apple chiles” because of their similar appearance to the sweet fruit. But besides sharing an appearance, Rocoto peppers boast amazing juicy and citrusy flavors that come with a decent amount of heat! You can use these pods fresh or dried but give them time to grow so you can admire these shiny peppers in your garden.

These Red Rocoto pepper seedlings were carefully grown from seed in our greenhouse and are guaranteed to arrive alive and healthy. Promptly follow the instructions included in your plant box or visit our Pepper Plant Care page for more information!

Rocotto pepper

Plants showed up looking good and have taken off since I planted them.

Perfect Packaging

My plants arrived in perfect condition even though we were in the middle of a heat wave. Potted them up and they are doing well. No peppers yet.
