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.

We are growing these peppers here in Memphis, TN USA where the heat and humidity are very high and the summers. They are doing VERY well and are producing little purple peppers like crazy! The deep purple flowers and peppers make for a beautiful addition to any garden. They are also very tasty but SO very hot. We are estimating that the ones we are getting are approx. 6 - 10 thousand on the Scoville. We sprouted the seeds in a mini Greenhouse (from Lowes) with 25 separate netted pockets of soil (Jiffy Plant Starter Kit), then transplanted them to pots after almost 2 months. Grew them in pots on our patio until they were about 8" tall, then we transplanted them to Topsy Turvey hanging upside down planters and kept them hanging on the patio. I have pics if anyone is interested. Highly recommend growing these!!
