Buran Pepper (Heirloom, 90 Days)


Polish Heirloom. Buran ripened up toward the end of the season up here in Maine, mid September, but the plant was loaded with green and ripe red peppers. We took a bite out of a green fruit and were quite surprised at the sweetness it had while still green, especially when compared to a green California Wonder pepper. Medium sized, 3-lobed fruits are 4” long. 

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.

I recommend this product


Although it is too soon to tell about the BURAN PEPPER I ordered, I am sure it will be a great addition to our yearly planting of over 300 pepper plants, encompassing 16 varieties. I have done business with Pine tree since the beginning of your company when the catalog was small, and almost devoid of photos, Always a good company to do business with

Very Prolific with Great Flavor

I did a terrible job starting seeds this spring but managed to have 4 Buran seedlings (I might have aimed for six and might have tossed 2 or given them away). Good thing I used tomato cages on my peppers because the plants were very heavy with peppers. I love sweet red peppers so I was aiming on Buran being my main crop for the freezer. I've made pepper relish, roasted 6 trays, cooked some for lunch and dinner. I'll grow Buran again.
