About Hot Pepper Seeds - Mad Hatter

Capsicum bacatum

Seed Type Hybrid Seed
Also known as Bishops Crown Pepper

This plant’s vigor, earliness, high yields, large size and awesome taste all contribute to its high score among AAS judges. Mad Hatter Hot Pepper Seeds grow such interesting-looking pods that grow two and a half inches long on four-foot-tall plants. Bell shaped little “hats” ripen from green to bright red at maturity, with smooth skin and a nice, crisp texture. While they look dangerously hot, Mad Hatter peppers are surprisingly sweet with a nice mellow heat. Best used in salads, pickled, and especially stuffed with cheese.
