Golden Nugget Hot Peppers take 75 days to mature. These hot little gems start out green, go to purple, and then ripen to a golden yellow color. These are highly productive! The heat on them varies; they are hotter than jalapenos but no where near as hot as habaneros. This Heirloom variety is great for pickling and drying! Also, plant a few in pots so you can bring them indoors at the end of the season. You will have fresh peppers well into winter! Happy growing!!!
