15+ Organically grown pepper seeds. This is one of the coolest of the sweet Italian peppers. It starts out a green then goes to a dark purple color and ripens to a red. It has a nice, sweet flavor in the purple color stage but will get slightly sweeter once red. It is great to eat fresh or to throw on the grill for a roasted pepper. Can have a slight heat around the seed core. A rare color of this variety of pepper.
