Purira pepper is a hot pepper that has many superb uses. Plants for this ornamental variety can reach 2.5-3 feet and produce prolifically. It’s a superb pepper for drying or canning. Makes great flakes and powder. Green peppers start of sort of purple before eventually turning turning bright red when ready. Heat is about 50,000 – 100,000 SHU, so it has some fire. Slightly fruity taste and smell. Great choice for containers!
