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 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.

Review on the 2014 season. I had about 60 plants this year, 14/15 fish pepper seeds I planted germinated and grew! My #1 go to pepper. Super super easy to grow.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, good germination

What are the cons? Finisky about transplanting

Review:

Love the pepper, very tasty and good looking with all the stripes before turning full red. Plant is very pretty with multicolored leaves. It is a tender plant, and branches easily come off during harvesting so be careful. That is my only dislike. Loads of peppers, the more you pick the more you get! They dehydrate very well for grinding and making rubs and spice blends.

What are the pros? good looking unique pepper

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is a great looking plant. I think they would make great ornamental plants around the front of the house and would have the bonus of producing great little peppers too. They come in about 10000 on the Scoville rating so they are very edible and are great to pickle as a hot pepper. Fantastic stripes make them very attractive in the bottles when canning. These plants thrived this year and had very nice yields.

Review:

This was my first purchase from Baker Creek. I couldn’t be happier with these pepper plants. I started them indoors, in late January in a South facing window. Out of all the seeds I probably got a 90% germination rate. I’ve got so many I’m going to be giving some away to friends. Awesome product! Will be buying more!
