Compact, beatiful plant with assortment of color.


Aurora definitely is not at the top of my list for flavor, but it is highly ornamental. The pods display a range of pretty colors on a productive, compact plant. These also have a little bit of heat to them, being on average about four times hotter than a stronger jalapeno. I haven't grown them in a few years, but am back to trying them again for pickling and to let others try them. If I remember correctly, the blossoms are purple.
