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.

Plant grew to 5 ft. tall and 5 ft. wide! It took over the center of my hot pepper garden, so give this plant plenty of elbow room. Very prolific and super hot. It made a killer chile powder.

Everything you expect from a pepper. Good bit, great taste and good yield. The uniqueness of the plant texture and the fruit turning black make it a joy to grow also.

Every chili head should have one in their garden! One of the most attractive chili's you'll grow. Put a couple of plants in a 2 gallon pot with a tomato cage and and soon the cage will disappear. Just a fountain of green, black and red pods surrounded by the fuzzy foliage. Spicier than most! Be prepared!

I've got one of these plants and it's definitely my favorite right now. It's a good producer.
