Hot Red Cherry peppers offer full-bodied flavor and moderate heat with sweet undertones. Plants bear profusely, yielding cherry-shaped green fruits that ripen to red if left unpicked. Cooks consider the small, fleshy peppers to be extremely good for pickling, preserving, and eating out of hand.
Take care to avoid garden mix-ups of Hot Red Cherry and Sweet Red Cherry peppers you may grow. Plants grow well in summer, continuing to yield and ripen fruit even in heat.
Plant in spring to early summer starting anytime about two weeks after the last spring frost. Peppers are very cold-sensitive. If you like to plant a little early to start harvesting earlier, be prepared to protect plants from possible frost and keep them a little warmer with a row cover.
