History: Aurora Pepper, while not as ancient as some pepper varieties, has garnered significant attention due to its vibrant color transitions and container-friendly nature. Named after the dazzling natural light display in the Earth's sky, predominantly seen in high-latitude regions around the Arctic and Antarctic, this pepper surely lives up to its radiant name.
Uses: Apart from its eye-catching presence in gardens, Aurora Pepper is a versatile culinary ingredient. Its mild to medium heat makes it perfect for those who want a touch of spice without the overpowering burn. Whether it's in a fresh salad, grilled for BBQs, or pickled for longer shelf life, Aurora Pepper adds both color and zest to dishes.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: Aurora Pepper is specially designed for container gardening. Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost. Once seedlings have 2-3 leaves and all danger of frost has passed, transplant them to larger pots or directly outside if you live in a warmer climate. Opt for a well-draining soil mix and ensure that your container has sufficient drainage holes. Place the container in a spot that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. Regular watering and occasional feeding with a balanced fertilizer will ensure a healthy plant and bountiful harvest. The compact size of the Aurora Pepper makes it a perfect fit for patios, balconies, or small gardens. Experience the color burst and nuanced heat of the Aurora Pepper in your own space!
