Hot Pepper is a crop which can be planted at Level 17. Planting costs 110 Coins but harvesting it earns 360. It takes 12 hours to mature from planting, which can be sped up using Gems.

It may also randomly drop from Ivy's Hut. It is used for various Kitchen recipes, especially in Ivy's Hot Sauce.

Harvesting a Hot Pepper triggers the Hot Peppers For Ivy quest (requires 30 Hot Peppers.). The "Ivy's Hot Sauce" quest (requires 30 Rat Tails) in the Kitchen Questline unlocks the recipe for Ivy's Hot Sauce.
