Purplegum (Orange)

The chameleon of the pepper world.  Fruit start purple, fade to green, then a bright orange – with an orange bleeding calyx.  This is one of the earlier producers in the Midwest.

The purplegum orange pepper is quite the stunning pepper.  The lineage is unknown but visually it is clearly a bleeding bubble gum variety as seen by the ripe orange calyx and stem.  Unripe fruit transition from green to purple and eventually orange.  Foliage is mostly green though there are tinges of purple along leaf edges and stems.  I expect this particular pepper to be somewhat unstable.  This variety grows quickly and is one of the earlier peppers in the Midwestern garden.

200000 SHU. This is an estimate. Scoville ratings will change based on growing conditions. Rarer and unstable fruit may still have genetic instability in heat expression.

    These are beautiful plants and easy to grow in 3 to 5 gallon grow bags!
    Wonderful production of peppers with a sweet flavor that doesn’t disappoint. The heat, though, will come up and smack you in the face! It’s wonderful and deceiving, in a way. The bleeding calyx is pretty darn cool, too!
    Very versatile for culinary uses and to eat raw.
    I think this plant is great for beginners. This is my first year growing it and it was a pleasant surprise in my gardens!
