Fish Pepper Seeds. Now this is a special pepper! An African American heirloom chilli that goes back pre 1870 and was used for fish and shellfish dishes. Originating in the Baltimore / Philidelphia area in the US. A beatiful ornimental plant with variegated leaves and pods. Pods and foliage is cream and green in colour. Pods vary from green with cream stripes to mostly cream in colour. This apparently made these chillies so special because their cream colour meant they cpould be added to make a cream chilli sauce for fish dishes. These pods do turn red once fully ripened and have faint orange stripes. Taste wise, these chillies are in the same category as the Jalapeño. Smaller pods but hotter and fruitier in flavour when fully ripened. Green/cream pods have a very herbacious flavour to them with hints of musk and melon. Plants are good growers and producers, growing to about 60/70cm in height.
