Don’t be fooled by this imposter! Despite a nearly identical appearance, this is not your trusty, old friend the Habanero. Actually, now that we’re thinking about it - this Sweet Imposter Pepper may actually treat you a little better than the original!

Sweet Imposter pepper plants grow around 3 ft. tall producing high yields of these muted orange pods that look exactly like a big Habanero pepper! They have a glossy, wrinkly exterior and ripen from green to a muted orange at maturity.

Once you take a bite, there is no mistaking it. The Sweet Imposter Pepper has essentially no heat – just tons of juicy, citrusy flavor. You'll be wondering if you got the right pepper for a second! But then, you'll come back to your sense and enjoy the great flavors the Sweet Imposter has to offer. You’ll enjoy these peppers in soups, salsas, and sauces, or just as a fresh snack.

Keep growing fruity sweetness in your garden with our Sweet Pepper Seeds and Sweet Pepper Plants!

Sweet Imposter Pepper Seeds

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.
