Hangjiao 7 Super Nova Pepper
Also known as Space Pepper, Super Nova Pepper has somewhat of an interesting story. In 1987 a Chinese scientist, Jiang Xingcun, discovered that sending seeds to satellites in space for a while created greater chances for mutations. These variations manifested themselves in the forms of bigger fruit sizes, yields and much increased nutritional values. This this pepper is as a result of one of his experiments. Measuring about 5000 SHU, Super Nova pepper is just about as hot as a Jalapeno. This makes it a medium heat variety. Great for drying, cooking, flakes and powders. Very nice for seasoning and cooking. 2.5 feet tall plants.
