Witch Stick pepper seeds were definite highlight from our 2016 field trials. The extra long fruits start green and mature to deep, dark red. The corkscrew-shaped pods grow to 20cm (8″) long, with more than a dozen fruits on each plant. The flavour is sweet and distinctive. The pith and seeds are quite hot, but easily removed to reduce the overall spice. These plants are productive in the field with no special mulch or preparation, and they also performed well in raised beds and five gallon containers. The novelty of the twisted fruits makes them fun to grow even as ornamentals.
