Havasu Hot Pepper (Garden Starter Plant)


Give your garden a little sizzle with Havasu hot pepper. This is a Santa Fe-type pepper, a favorite in the Southwest. Fruits are thick-walled and cone shaped. They’re a good choice for stuffing, frying, or pickling, or use them to create a spicy version of chile rellenos. Havasu peppers are typically harvested when yellow, but also tasty when ripened to red.
