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.

My 29 year old son LOVES hot peppers and the Bhut Jolokia I have growing was more then he could stand... So tonight I gave him a tiny sliver of the fully ripe pepper. The result was great!!! He cried, he drooled, he paced back and forth and he prayed (and he's not a religious man!!). They are HOT! And I'm pretty sure they are not meant to be eaten by themselves. One drop will do ya! And yeah... he's ready to do it again!

I planted this in 2011 and the plant grew big and strong. It flowered quite late compared to my other Capsicums but yielded much more than I could ever use. I dried the fruits but haven't dared to try them- It's all about growing it for me :) My friend who did try them though, said he cried and screamed for 2 hours. Hehehe...
