Germ 10-14 days
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
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, in 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.
