Firework peppers start as a bright green before maturing to a wide variety of colors – red, white, orange, and purple! Besides the array of colors, Firework Peppers also have explosive heat to them – up to 45,000 SHUs! We caution you when biting into these peppers, as you might not know how hot it will end up being. Fire Cracker Peppers are a popular hot Birdseye pepper variety for use in Asian, African, and Spanish cuisines.

A beautiful ornamental pepper variety! This pepper is still edible, but are quite spicy. Ornamental peppers get their name for their showy colors. The firecracker pepper is a showstopper! Plants produce bushes that are filled with clusters of purple, red, and yellow pimento shaped peppers that point up to the sky!
Peppers like heat and will thrive between 60 and 80 °F. However, too much warmer, and they will fail to flower and set fruit. Most peppers will drop their blooms when daytime temperatures get much above 90/ in combination with night temperatures above 75°F.  Above 95°F stops the plant from growing. Shading during the hottest part of summer can help.
They love the sunshine, so they need at least six to eight hours daily.
The soil should be a well-drained, fertile, sandy loam with a slightly acidic pH of between 6.2 and 7.0. Enrich it with several inches of organic matter, compost, or aged animal manure mixed into the upper 4-8 inches of soil before planting. Minerals and micronutrients are also important, including phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
Peppers do best when watered slowly and deeply. Water your plants early in the morning before the sun gets too hot. Always water at the base of the plant. Drip irrigation would be ideal. Mulching around the plants will conserve soil moisture. Keep the soil moist but never soggy.
Gardening for happiness!
