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.

This will be the third year I`ve grown this variety and I cant say enough about the ease of growing these beautiful peppers. And talk about a conversation piece! They look like little ufo`s. I make quart baggies of a variety of peppers to give away to friends and am always bombarded with questions about this pepper. I`m not sure they should be considered a hot pepper though as they are very mild and slightly sweet.

My Bishop's Crown grew tall and bushy, more so than most peppers I have. It did seem to grow a little slower than the others and produced peppers later. The peppers are terrific and interesting ornamentals when red. I wasn't happy with the taste of the pepper at all and it had no heat. Use this one as an ornamental in your garden and you will be happy.

I LOVE these peppers---I can make a meal off them. You never know how much heat you will get when you eat them---some have none and then some are quite hot. They are a little sweet and everyone I give them to falls in love with them. They do mature later than most other peppers.
