Ornamental plants have purple flowers and dark green foliage with purple veining. Plants reach 75-90 cm. in height and bear numerous, thick walled, mildly hot peppers. Most of the heat is in the ribs and seeds; the flesh itself has a fruity flavour. Try it in salsa, chutney or in any dish where you want just a little heat.
