Hot Pepper Seed Planting Information:

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.

 

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.

Harvest Tips:

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.

These seeds were very easy to grow and germinated quickly. the Naga Jolokia was a bit tempramental when hardening off but that was due to rather rapid changes in our weather here this year. All in all, these seeds were top-shelf. This will be to only place I buy my seeds from from now on!

I purchased the seeds in the fall of 2008 and started them indoors under the lights in the winter. All 5 seeds germinated and are very healthy. I potted one to see how it would do and soon enough it was 3 feet high! Two others are in pots the other two I planted in the ground. I live in Michigan and they are not happy in the ground, I think the soil temp needs to stay a lot warmer overnight for the plants to flourish. The ones in pots are starting to produce fruit in June when I started them in February.
