Hot Pepper Seed
Some hot pepper varieties come from tropical
humid regions and some varieties come from dry desert regions. The temperature,
moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds.
Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause
poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil
becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have
experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products.
Use Miracle Gro Seed Starting Material for best germination results. Read the Hot Pepper Growing Tips and Planting Instructions for information on
growing hot peppers from seeds. Please take time to watch the Hot Pepper Planting Instructions Movie . Plants can grow 1 to 7 ft tall.
Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant.
Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
Harvest hot peppers when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so
you don't damage the plant. Pick peppers as they mature to encourage new buds to form.

I grew up in Guam, and if these are the same peppers I always knew. They are the hottest. Try one bite and see for yourself. Remember a little goes a long way.

I was given some seeds resembling these peppers by a cook. He picked them up in Africa and said they were called African Fire peppers. Extremely hot. Grown indoors in pots will grow for years. I had three plants in pots that were 3 years old. Not as hot grown indoors in cooler climates but very prolific. Main stock begins to resemble that of a tree after 2 years. Will withstand periods of drought up to 3 weeks. Fun pepper and plant.
