ANCHO HOT PEPPER (80 days heirloom)

SKU:

Germ 10-14 days
Heirloom
This is the primary Poblano-type pepper. It is nearly the size of a regular bell pepper but flattened and pointed at the end. An attractive shiny green with a thick flesh which makes it ideal for stuffing. Pungency is generally quite mild and green although it will eventually redden. 20 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 70-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed and when soil is 65 degrees.

Harvest- Using a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to color and sweeten up.

Tips- Plant in fertile, well composted soil, mulch and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.
