The Pepper named after Pumpkin Spice

The The New Mexico State University Chile Pepper Breeding Program has brought out a number of color variants of chili pepper with whimsical names like Sunrise, Sunglo, and eElipse.

Their latest invention is a set of jalapenos (Capsicum annuum) that ripen into yellow, orange and "pumpkin orange" colors. These are called ‘NuMex Lemon Spice’, ‘NuMex Orange Spice’, and ‘NuMex Pumpkin Spice'. Seeds can be bought online form the Chile Pepper Institute.
