Pepper Hot, Sugar Rush Red

80% of 100

A lipstick-red version of the super popular Sugar Rush Peach. Chris Fowler, pepper breeder extraodinaire from Wales, developed this fruity, spicy pepper. We are smitten with the long, bright red fruit, which pairs saccharine sweet with nice spicy heat. Try this dynamic and complex pepper in salsas, hot sauces or even as a spicy sweet snack eaten out of hand. Tall plants will reach 5 feet, and staking is helpful to keep plants upright.
