The Purple Jalapeño Pepper is an ornamental version of the jalapeño pepper.  This pepper makes a colorful alternative to the norm. The fruit starts off a deep green, turns a beautiful shade of dark purple (nearly black) and stays that way for a long time before finally ripening to red.

It is common for the plants to display all three colors simultaneously. With crunchy, deep walls, a lime green interior, and classic jalapeno flavor, this variety is a colorful divergence from standard jalapeños.

This plant produces beautiful lavender flowers.
