Fruits are 3 to 4” long and have medium thick walls with the color changing from a deep green to a true golden color in just a matter of days. Yields are reasonably heavy on 2’, erect plants.
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.

Easy enough to start in the house, then we hardened them on the porch for a week before setting them into the garden. Watered them for a couple of weeks, and then ignored them except for picking.
