Peter Pepper


"The Most Pornographic Pepper" It tastes and looks HOT

The pepper is most commonly grown in eastern Texas and Louisiana, although it is grown in Mexico, as well. It was first popularized in the United States by Frank X. Tolbert in his Dallas Morning News column about obscure local history, although he saw the pepper only once in his life. It has since been studied by horticulture experts at the University of Texas at Austin and Louisiana State University. Though it is rare, its seeds are available from some private suppliers. It is adaptable to a variety of growing conditions. The pepper, particularly the red variety, has been described as a "miniature replica of the circumcised male organ". Another name for Peter Pepper is "the Chilli Willy peppers". The uniquely shaped chilis have won a few awards including the right to be called "The Most Pornographic Pepper" by Organic Gardening Magazine
