Numex Centennial

(Capsicum annuum)

Origin : New Mexico
Heat Rating : VERY MILD

This was the first truly ornamental variety bred by the New Mexico State University intended for growing in small containers.

It was released in 1988 to celebrate their NMSU's Centennial celebrations. 'NuMex Centennial' has purple flowers and purple foliage.

The upright hot fruits, 2cm and 3cm long are purple, then ripen to yellow, orange, and finally red. Very similar in appearance to the Bolivian Rainbow.
