BACKGROUND:

The fish pepper is a pepper cultivar of the species Capsicum annuum. Originating in the Caribbean and brought to the US in the 19th century, the fish pepper grew in popularity in the Mid-Atlantic region. In Baltimore and Philadelphia, the fish pepper became a popular ingredient in seafood, and was commonly used in many crab and oyster houses thus giving it its name. The plant's varigated foliage and colorful fruit also makes this variety a superb addition for ornamental and edible landscaping.
