Description: We do love it when plants combine an incredible ornamental quality with superb culinary class, and this is definitely one of those situations! You can grow this compact pepper in pots or in the garden, and you can even consider wintering Chinese Five Color peppers indoors (requires an extremely sunny location or grow lights). The small fruits are about ten times hotter than a jalapeno, so they pack a good punch. Often used for fresh for salsa, stirfrying and also as dried flakes.
