Plant Features

Medusa Ornamental Pepper is a dwarf variety with long, slender peppers that often twist and curl, kind of like Medusa's hair! It is most often used as a container plant, though those in very temperate climates may use this variety as a border plant. Dark green foliage supports the upright growing peppers that mature from ivory to orange to red. Not hot at all, you can plant these where the kids play and use them as colorful garnish for salads or canned goods.

Companion Planting: Geranium, Marigold
