Hot Peppers

We're starting up a new project in our Nyack store, a hydroponic Ebb & Flow display of hot peppers.  We're starting our seeds today and we always start way more than we end up needing, so if you'd like some free seedlings from some great natural, non-GMO, heirloom seeds, stop by in about 2-3 weeks!  If you'd like some and you're a customer at our Queens store, just give us a call ahead of time and we'll bring some over.  What we'll be growing (all from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds):

Purple Jalapeño - A large spicy jalapeño pepper that turns a deep purple before maturing to red.

- Black Night (sorry no link, these were from last year's batch) - A chili pepper that starts out black and ripens to bright red.  Produces very pretty purple flowers.

- Chocolate Habanero Pepper - A lantern-shaped habanero chili that starts out as green and ripens to chocolate-brown.  They're pretty hot, coming in at about 300,000 on the Scoville scale.

Chinese 5 Color Pepper - Screaming hot little peppers turn a rainbow of vibrant colors; from purple, cream, yellow, orange to red as they ripen, so all 5 colors can be on the plant at once.
