The “Russian Roulette” Pepper certainly has a memorable name, and for good reason. This native plant of Spain grows a relatively small green pepper which is famous for being even sweeter than a bell pepper! That is, 9 out of 10 “Russian Roulettes” are sweeter than a bell pepper and 1 out of 10 are said to be five times spicier than a jalapeño! The sweet and spicy peppers both grow on the same plant! The peppers are all similar in appearance and there’s virtually no way of knowing which pepper is which, aside from taste testing them. This is a hugely popular variety in the Galicia region of Spain where it is used widely for tapas but has yet to gain popularity with spicy lovers in the United States. Good thing us spicy food lovers like to live dangerously!

A little about us:
We at Hot Plants are people who are passionate about spicy food. There’s no bigger symbol of spicy than the pepper and It’s astounding how many varieties of peppers exist (over 7000), yet the typical grocery store carries only 5 - 10. This is nothing less than tragic! Our mission is to help other spicy food lovers explore just how superior home-grown spicy produce is when compared to the month-old, chemical treated peppers at the grocery store. Store-bought hot sauce is good, but hand-making your own fresh salsa and sauces from the crisp and juicy produce that you’ve grown is heavenly. We at Hot Plants want to help you grow the spice of life!
