Ratings & Reviews
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.
Pretty, compact plants with purple flowers and colorful fruit which has some heat but is otherwise unremarkable in flavor. Grow as an ornamental.
This was my first time ordering from Seed Savers and I ordered a variety of seeds. The Aurora peppers did beautifully and I even uprooted a few plants and placed in pots to give to the neighbors.
