This ornamental pepper is just for fun, and I predict you won't be able to resist potting up a few in your best containers as well as edging the border or other garden accent with a long line of them! A dwarf plant less than a foot tall and even more narrow, it offers brightly variegated foliage and charming peppers that turn colors as they ripen, for an ever-changing display that lasts for many weeks!

Shu is a compact, upright plant with cream-splashed leaves that look showy from spring right up to frost. In summer it covers itself with 1- to 1 1/2-inch peppers that begin white, then turn all shades of yellow and gold before finally ripening to a deep, rich red. Though perfectly edible, they have little flavor and are best grown just for their beauty. (You won't want to remove a single one from the plant anyway -- they look too good there, like a summer version of a Christmas tree!)

Shu reaches just 8 to 10 inches high and 6 to 8 inches wide, so it fits comfortably even in a 4-inch pot, and fills a slightly larger container nicely. It will start setting fruit in early summer if you sow the seeds indoors (start them a week or two after your Tomatoes) and transplant them when the seedlings have at least two sets of leaves and the soil is warm and free from any danger of frost. Peppers are even more sensitive to cold weather than tomatoes, so give them a few extra weeks indoors just to make sure! Pinch the young plants to increase their bushiness. Very easy in full sun and well-drained soil! Pkt is 10 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

These are actually quite delicious and pack a spicy punch! Gorgeous foliage that is very hardy and copious colorful peppers that remain for ages, drying on the plant if left unpicked. A great edible ornamental that does amazing in containers. You'll have more peppers than you know what to do with
