Dragon peppers unlike other peppers come in a large variety of colors with down facing leaves better suited for forests and rainy conditions

Stories[edit]

Dragon peppers are feared for their 'supposed' connection to demons and curses but as of yet no proof of unholy origin has occurred. What is known is that these plants share an odd property to burst out in gas, acid or other energy when eaten.

Ecology[edit]

Most humans avoid dragon peppers but some nomadic tribes use them as tribute to Tiamat or some other Dragon god/messiah

Growth and Harvest[edit]
