Nothing says summer in the Midwest like tall corn fields, Cubs baseball games, and delicious pickled sport peppers on top of a classic Chicago-dog. But, let’s be honest – no matter where you are or which team you’re rooting for, these sport pepper seeds are a must.  

The Sports Pepper is a medium-hot, slender, pointed fruit that is a slightly larger version of a Tabasco Pepper. Plants are super sturdy, produce in abundance, and turn from green to red when mature. Sports Peppers are often pickled and once pickled – well, it seems the ways to use it are pretty much infinite. Think sandwiches, Italian beef roast, pizza, and hot dogs, of course. 

Fun Fact:  The sporty name of this pepper is in honor of its most popular use as a pickled topping for Chicago hot dogs at the ballpark!

Sport Pepper & Hot Cherry Pepper Seeds

Nearly all my seeds germinated and can’t wait to get them in the ground! Fast delivery and great customer support!

Why don't more people grow Sport Peppers?

Pretty decent germination rate, fairly quick growers, for peppers, productive plants.

Margaret Fumo
Love the seeds!

Pepper Joe is a great seed company. This is my 3rd year ordering. I love all the variety of peppers. I can always find what I need here. The seeds have always had high germination, seeds ship quick especially in these days. Will keep coming back!

Jacob Ginsberg
Will give good rating

The timely deliver of the seeds has impressed me... went ahead and planted one seed along with one compact thai and one lemon drop. Started a bunch of ghost peppers too to get a head start on the year... will have more to say in the following months

Arrived as expected but with bonus!!!

The seeds arrived as ordered, shipping was very quick, arrived earlier than I expected (yay!), and there were BONUS SEEDS and some pretty cool stickers that came with them. I have them started in my AeroGarden, hopefully they sprout soon.
