Takii's New Ace Pepper (F1 Hybrid 62 Days)

2 reviews

The big advantage of this variety is that it sets fruit well in cool weather and thus is a good choice for the North and coastal regions in particular. Fruits are medium in size and flavor is good.

20 seeds  


Caspsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slows germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch-off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with composted if needed. 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.

    Takii New Ace Pepper

    I always shoe easily on line with Pinetree. Ordering is easy to accomplish. Ace Peppers are the only ones I have planted for the past 6-7 years. They produce a heavy yield and provide for friends and family.

    So far so good

    I have started some of my seeds under lights. Trying the soil block method. Seeds have germinated well. Will plant more as the season progresses. The rosemary has not germinated as well as I would like, so I started more seeds to be sure I have enough plants.
