ALL AMERICA SELECTIONS WINNER. This ornamental pepper seems to explode in a riot of color, bringing bright orange and red to landscapes or containers. Chilly Chili is safe to use around children because the peppers are not pungent. 2 to 2½ inch long fruit are borne above the foliage and start out greenish-yellow, then turn to orange, and finally to dark red. Plants grow about 1 foot tall and wide.
