Maui Purple chilli seeds. The Maui Purple (C. Annuum) is a stunningly beautiful chilli plant. It has a lovely compact bushy structure that grows to roughly 60cm in height - possibly higher. Foliage and branches are a stunning dark purple/black with a dark green blush. Accented with stunning purple flowers that materialize into typical annuum pods that are facing heaven and roughly about 3 - 4cm in length. Pods start out a very eye catching black and mature to a rich red colour when fully ripe. This has to be one of those top 10 ornamentals in the dark foliage category. But, as stunning as this plant looks, its pods do have culinary use too. Quite seedy, these pods do have a fantastic potential for use in salsas and for turning into chilli flakes or powder. The heat on these is hot. These pods are very pungent and have a lovely sundried pepper aroma and very peppery burn and flavour about them. A really awesome variety to grow!!
