Developed by New Mexico State University, this is a very beautiful chile. Hot, ornamental and with a lovely flavour, you can't go past NuMex Twilight.
Growing to about 45cm (18in) tall, it becomes covered in chiles that start out purple, then move through yellow and orange, becoming red when fully ripe, producing a rainbow effect on the green plant. Fruit grows upright in clusters in all colour stages at the same time and with the lovely dark green foliage and pretty white flowers it is one of the most beautiful chiles around.
It is a hybrid based on the Thai Ornamental pepper. Happy in containers or in the ground.
