Medusa peppers are a type of sweet, ornamental chili pepper which grows upright, brightly colored fruit, which is long and thin, producing a "hair of snakes" look suggestive of the gorgon Medusa in Greek mythology.

The fruit is sweet, unusual for ornamental pepper, and goes from green through yellow and orange, to become red when fully ripe.[1]
