Ornamental Pepper Plant

.
Capsicum annuum grown for its brightly colored fruit, ornamental pepper plant is not particularly attractive until it becomes loaded with ripening peppers in fall and winter. Another common name for this plant is Christmas Pepper.
There's a number of cultivars to choose from within this species, with the most common being the plant with peppers that turn from green to yellow and then red. Other fruit colors are also available, like the Bolivian rainbow which produces a variety of colors or the variegated flash with it's purple fruits. However, it's a one-time production. You can expect ornamental peppers to produce fruit for up to 6 weeks. It will not bear fruit again and is usually treated as a temporary house plant and discarded when it is no longer attractive.
The fruit is edible but it's extremely hot and can lack sweetness, depending on the variety grown. If you use them for cooking, do protect your hands or keep them well away from any other skin area - until they have been washed thoroughly.
The level of care needed to grow the pepper plant is moderately easy and just needs the basics, such as moist soil, plenty of light and moderate to cool temperatures.
