Mad Hatter Pepper (F1 Hybrid 80-105 Days)

An exotic AAS-winning pepper with winged lobes that form a flattened disc shape. It has a crisp and crunchy texture and a lightly sweet, fruity flavor. Use in either green or red stage; they are perfect for snacking, salsa, pickling, and stuffing. Flavor intensifies as the fruit ripens, and in hotter climates, the center may produce a hint of heat, but the outer lobes remain sweet.

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with compost if needed. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.
