Capsicum baccatum. This eye-catching variation on the Bishop’s Cap pepper variety is a new, award winning hybrid with superior plant vigour and higher yield than its OP cousins. The flattened disc shaped pods of Mad Hatter provide a crisp and crunchy texture for snacking at the mature green or red stage. Grown in arid conditions, the peppers will take on a slight heat around the seed cavity, but otherwise the flesh remains sweet and mild. This All America Selections Winner grows to a maximum height of 122cm (48″), but it’s suitable for large containers and super productive in open field or high tunnel settings.
Matures in 65-70 days to green, 85-90 days to red. (Hybrid seeds)
