80 days. An African-American heirloom popular in the Philadelphia/Baltimore region. A pre-1947 variety that was used in fish and shellfish cookery. The color of the fruit range from green, orange, brown, white and red, being spicy and hot. What really makes this pepper stand out is its wonderful foliage, as the 2-feet tall plants have stunning white and green mottled leaves, which makes this variety superb for ornamental and edible landscaping.

Review:

I'm not a hot pepper person but certain dishes call for them. I figured these were a good compromise between totally hot and sweet. They're pretty hot but there's lots to do with them. Made a candied jalapeno (using fish peppers) relish which people who love hot ...love. Pretty in the garden and they don't need a fence because even the deer don't want them. Great little pepper.

Review:

We had ONE plant this summer for the two of us, and were drowning in peppers! The plant is beautiful with many white speckled leaves, and even many of the peppers are striped before they turn red. I started this plant indoors in Feb/March and planted out in late April. We are still getting a bumper crop of peppers mid-Sept. They are great fresh, but also dry well for storage. We had a bit of a Harlequin beetle problem late in the season, and while they loved hanging out on my other pepper plants (and kale, and Brussels sprouts...), they pretty much left the fish pepper alone. Highly recommended.

Review:

Planted this pepper in 2013, grew in a container. This is a beautiful plant and the peppers are so pretty, differing in color from purples to whites to reds. I tend to forget about my container plants, so I'm sure my lack of production in peppers was due to user error. The peppers I did get were small and had a little heat that is not overwhelming. Great thrown on the grill with other veggies. Would definitely grow again, even for ornamental purposes.

Review:

I purchased a Fish Pepper plant last year and am starting my own from seed this year. The plant I grew last year (just one plant) was extremely productive and kept pumping out peppers for months. I added some to jars of pickles, used some fresh in spicy dishes, strung a lot of them to dry and gave away many to neighbors. I hope the seed I started germinates and produces well. I've been using my dried fish peppers all winter to crumble into soups and stews. My plant was a beautiful, bushy little tree that wasn't even growing in ideal conditions. I picked most of my peppers when they turned red and no matter how many I picked, they just kept coming. The peppers are fairly hot, so a little goes a long way unless you really like a lot of heat. My plant had branches where the leaves were variegated and some that weren't. Most of the peppers had striping until they were red ripe. Fish was the most productive pepper plant in my garden last year and very versatile.
