Aconcagua Pepper ( 75 days, Heirloom )


Argentinian Heirloom

This very large pepper plant is named after a mountain in Argentina where it originated. Plants can grow close to 3 feet in height and probably need to be supported as the fruit set is very heavy. Fruit can come close to a foot in length and ripen from green to orange to red. They have great flavor for fresh use at any stage of maturity and are great for roasting when fully mature. 20 seeds.




Germination-10-14 days

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.

best, biggest, most reliable pepper I've grown

These are just great! Very productive, big plants. I use tomato cages to support them. The peppers are very large, thick fleshed, and rather flat- which makes them really easy to roast on the grill. The flavor is very good, especially when allowed to turn red. I grow these every year. I am glad they are open pollinated because I always worry about my favorites getting dropped from catalogs.
