Chinese Five Color Hot Pepper
Fresh from my garden, here is my Chinese Five Colour Hot Pepper plant growing with peppers in all five colors. They start out purple, then change to a creamy off-white, then yellow, orange, and red. The red one must be just about ready to be picked and the orange one isn't too far off. I haven't tasted these peppers yet but I hear that they are hot!
My plant is leaning a bit to the side so I should probably stake it. Also, next year, I will be sure to plant my peppers in big pots like the tomatoes as I keep seeing that these pepper plants can grow quite a bit larger and bushier. I am really happy that these peppers all seem to be growing really well, and I will have a great variety of hot peppers to eat throughout the rest of the summer! This plant is quite beautiful with all of the bright colours.
