The Scarlett’s Chilli is quite the eye-catching, breathtaking variety that is definitely worth growing in your garden. We have been hard at work stabilizing this F5 variety so you can reap the benefits. Bred by Graeme Chaplin in Western Australia, this is an easy plant to maintain with a gorgeous ripening stage. Ripening from dark purple to different shades of violet with dark stripes to a final state of red with blotchy purple stripes, this is a favorite among chili growers!
The Scarlett’s Chili pepper plant has variegated foilage of purples, whites, and greens covering this 2-3-foot-tall plant, making it a sight to see. The plant is loaded with scarlet-colored pods and beautiful blossoms…did I mention this plant is gorgeous? The plant will produce pods growing to about an inch that are slightly sweet peppers with a similar heat to a Jalapeño. It doesn’t just look the part, it tastes as good as it looks!
