Orion Pepper Seeds

Orion Pepper Seeds are more than just a way to grow peppers; they represent a journey through color and flavor. Hailing from the imaginative crossbreeding expertise of Rocco Maltesi in Italy, these seeds promise a pepper plant like no other. Originally named as the result of a vibrant three-way cross – Fatalli Gourment Jigsaw x Big Red Mama x Yaki Blue Fawn – Orion pepper plants boast a spectacular visual display. Their dark purple branches and veins in the foliage create a contrasting backdrop for the striking multicolor peppers. These peppers undergo a captivating color transformation, starting green, shifting to dark purple, transitioning to light brown, and finally settling on a molten red.

    Very cool looking mostly purple plants and the color change of the peppers as they matured was very unique! Flavor was best when I waited until the peppers were the reddish color. Super hot!
