PLANTING

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.

Seeds germinated in 3 days

Not the first year I have bought seeds from Pinetree, and certainly not the last. Their seeds have always had an excellent rate of germination and good produce growth and taste. As for these peppers, I’ve grown them for several years with good success and excellent taste.

We have had so much rain for the last two months and haven't got the seeds planted yet. Hoping the rain holds off a few days now since I am working on it today. . I know I will be quite satisfied with all the seeds. Thank you.. Norma Parnell

One of my favorite things I grew last year

I got lots of healthy plants, and the peppers themselves were surprisingly large and delicious! My only regret was that they were ready for harvest when I was out of town for a week, so a neighbor got quite a few.

Catching up

I started these indoors with some other peppers and tomatoes. The seeds were very slow to germinate, about a week behind everything else despite bottom heat and identical other conditions. But now that they been outside for almost a month, they have caught up and they're looking just terrific. I will update this review at harvest time.
