Numex Twilight Pepper is as beautiful as it is hot! Compact 16" to 18" inch plants produce a gorgeous rainbow of color as the fruits mature. The mini, 3/4" inch upward facing fruits start off white and transition to purple, then yellow to orange and are red when fully mature. Peppers are ripe for harvest when they are yellow, orange or red. Developed at the New Mexico State University. Interestingly, despite their tiny size, they pack a punch of heat, averaging about 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Numex Twilight Peppers are an excellent variety for compact garden spaces, patios and containers. This pepper is a fabulous option for fresh market growers who want to diversify by offering mini potted vegetable varieties. Numex Twilight is also grown for ornamental garden decor for the beauty of the outstanding display of colors. 70 days. Packet: 25 seeds.
