Anaheim Hot Pepper (Heirloom, 80 Days)

Heirloom. This is the pepper you want for Chile Relleno and the ubiquitous red or green sauces. The 30” plant bears smooth, flat, 2 celled peppers, about 7-8” in length. They are pungent, but not terribly hot. 

20 seeds  


Caspsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

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

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before the 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 the 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 compost 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.

Unfortunately, my peppers sprouted but never got 2nd leaves and just shrived up. Tomatoes came up and doing well. Will be transplanting to garden soon!

Honey berries

Only 7 of the plants survived. 4 of them looked like they were going to make it but then died. One of them never showed any sign of life. The strawberries were 100 percent successful.

I don’t need many of these peppers I mainly do bell peppers. 2 of three germinated and look good. I have them under a t-5 and started them on a heat mat. I bought a good bit of seeds from u guys and have clean raised beds I can send u pics if u like or when the plants mature. My other seeds have had a super high germination rate.


very good anaheim pepper

I use this pepper primarily as a "base" pepper in my salsa recipe. It is a heavy producer, though the peppers will start to turn red before they reach the giant size for stuffing....but a good size for roasting on the stove. A definite winner!!
