Capsicum annuum. Medium Hot. 65 days green, 80 days red.
This Korean type pepper is intermediate in size, shape, and heat level when compared to the smaller, hotter Korean, and the larger, milder Hong Gochu Large. After ripening to a classic red color, fruit dry down to a deep, dark, mysteriously translucent red. Possibly one of the most beautiful peppers we grow. Lady Han hot pepper has perfectly balanced flavor and appearance. An excellent all-purpose choice for making gochugaru (dried, coarsely ground red pepper flakes), and fermented chili paste like gochujang. This variety was gifted to us in an internet seed swap by Kristyn Leach of Namu Farm in California, who received it from a source in Korea. Kristyn is a seed steward of many Korean varieties, some of which can be found through Kitazawa Seed Company.
