Product Information

Plant Tepin pepper seeds in your garden for continuous pepper production all season long! These little but mighty peppers will surely add a kick and serious heat to your recipes. They  are great in chili, stir-fries, and sauces.

This fabulous pepper produces tons and tons of small and powerful red chilis. A favorite of pepper connoisseurs, Tepin peppers can perennialize in mild climates and become more like perennial bushes than pepper plants.

Like all peppers, they need warm soil to germinate. You can improve germination with a heating mat.

Planting Tepin Pepper Seeds by Zones

Zones 9–10

  • Peppers are a warm-season crop in Zones 9 and 10. You can plant them in the spring through late summer. Many pepper plants can perennialize in Zones 9 and 10, but their production will diminish drastically.

Zones 2–8

  • Start inside eight weeks before the last frost. Use a seedling heat mat to ensure good germination rates.

Planting Tepin Pepper Seeds

  • In Zones 9 and 10, you can direct seed or transplant out your pepper seeds. We recommend starting them in early spring in starter pots and transplanting them out.
  • Peppers need warm soil to germinate. If you are starting them in starter pots, a heating pad will speed up the germination process. If you are planting outside, make sure the soil is at least 80°F.
  • To direct sow, plant seeds in debris-free, well-worked soil that has been deeply watered. Cover with 1/4″ of finely sifted soil. The minimum temperatures at night should be no less than 60°F.
  • If you are planting seeds in starter pots, plant seeds into thoroughly moist high-quality seed starting soil. Place seeds on the top of the soil and cover with 1/4″ of finely sifted soil.
  • Fertilize with an organic liquid fertilizer once your seeds have germinated and are 1–2″ tall. When the plants are 3–4″ tall, you can plant them out in the garden.
  • Space plants at least 12″ apart.

Growing from Tepin Pepper Seeds

  • Peppers are easy to grow once you get them established.
  • Mulching heavily around your peppers will help with weed suppression and moisture retention.

Harvesting Tepin Peppers

  • Harvest peppers often to encourage more production. Tepin peppers are at peak flavor in the pale orange stage. Cut fruits from their stems; do not pull.

Growing Peppers in Containers

  • Peppers make excellent container plants. Make sure your container is at least 20″ deep and provide support for the plants to grow up. Keep in mind containers will dry out faster because they have more surface area and less soil to hold onto moisture. Mulch heavily on the top layer of soil in the pot to keep the soil from drying out or heating up too much.

Southern California Pro-tips

  • Mulch heavily around your plants to ensure the soil does not dry out or heat up too much.
  • When growing bell peppers, using shade cloth can help diminish sun scald that can scar the pepper’s skin.
