At first it tastes sweet and then medium hot. Its great flavor is the result of hand selection over hundreds of years. Allow the chiles to remain on the plant and mature until almost completely red. The thin skinned pods are 6″ -7″ long and after harvesting will dry quickly in the sun. Capsicum annuum (75 days) Heirloom – Open-pollinated – Non-GMO
Heat Level: Medium Scoville 4,000 – 5,000
Packet contains 30 seeds.
In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 – 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are green. If left on the plant a couple more weeks, the chiles will turn red at full maturity.
