5 thoughts on “‘Red Rocoto’ Hot Pepper Flower

  1. I love my Rocoto. It and my other red black seeded hot pepper whose name is escaping me, both work as perennial peppers in the bay area. In fact, I was harvesting into the end of December this year and have been in the ground for 4 years now. Totally cool!

  2. Maureen: They are a great pepper. I would love to see what an outdoor perennial looks like. I’m guessing huge since they grow like vines!

    Victoria: I’m snipping the flowers off to give the plants a break. I’ll let them produce fruit once I’ve transferred them outdoors for the summer.

  3. Gayla,

    I will take a picture now (I just cut them back after their winter bounty) and in a couple of months once they start growing crazy again. I have some backyard hens in my garden as well, so the manure I apply makes everything huge!
