Suggested Planting Requirements: For optimal growth, choose soil that has been deeply worked with organic matter and good drainage. Adding organic matter is essential. A pH level of 6.0-6.8 is recommended. Chili peppers should be watered deeply but do not overwater. Peppers can easily be grown in containers or patio gardens.
Growing Recommendations: Peppers can be started indoors on heating mats or outdoors directly in the soil once the soil is warm. Growers can use plastic mulch to warm the soil is early planting is desired. Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Most growers will require a heat mat to get good germination. Once seeds have sprouted and given their true leaves, fertilize with a diluted liquid organic fertilizer each time you water. If planting outside directly in the ground, plant in sunny, warm and sheltered areas. Areas with high wind should be avoided. Pinch all flowers until the main stalk reaches 18” for optimum support. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control. For Southern California growers, peppers may be kept over winter in warm areas and perennialized. For those living near the coast, take caution as pepper plants do not grow well in salty soil.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest at any point and use both dry and fresh. This pepper is a kitchen staple. Can be used fresh in chili or dehydrated for later use in sauces. You can use it in so many ways! Many growers dehydrate the peppers to make chili flakes that they can use all season long. You can also add it to oil or vinegar for flavor. Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don’t pull) the fruit from the stems, as this will prevent damage. Harvestable from the green stage through the color change for varying flavor and texture.
