Medusa Pepper Seeds
This is a sweet and ornamental chili variety, is celebrated for its unique appearance and mild flavor. Resembling the mythical Gorgon Medusa with its upright, brightly colored fruits, this pepper grows long and thin, creating a striking visual effect. Fruit grows from the center top of the plant, creating the illusion. The peppers mature in vibrant shades of yellow, orange, and red, often all present at once, contributing to its ornamental appeal.
In terms of size, the Medusa pepper plants are compact and perfect for container gardening, growing no taller than 6 to 8 inches. They can produce dozens of conical chilies, each about 2 inches long and often slightly curved. Despite its monstrous namesake, the Medusa pepper is very mild, with a heat level ranging from 1 to 1,000 Scoville Heat Units, making it more of a visual delight than a culinary challenge.
Ideal for indoor growth on sunny windowsills or outdoor cultivation in sunny, sheltered spots, the Medusa pepper is a charming addition to any garden space, offering both aesthetic beauty and a mild, sweet flavor. This makes it a suitable choice for ornamental purposes or for adding a mild chili flavor without overpowering heat to dishes.
