Pimento Pepper (75 Days)

Heart-shaped, smooth, round fruits average 3 1/2” in length. Eventually, they turn from green to deep red. Go ahead - stuff your own olives. 

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.

Growing pimento peppers in Florida

I love Pinetree and have actually used them years ago. It is still warm (90's) and sunny here on the Panhandle of Florida . There are at least 25 peppers on 4 plants with more to come. Germination is July, plants up and healthy by mid-August, into large containers in September., tons of peppers coming along., some as large as 4", but still green. More later...

Good results, at least in Florida

I grew this for the first time this summer in Florida. What a great pepper and big producer. It stopped when our weather go in the 90's, but is still very much alive and starting to flower again. The flavor and sweetness is unreal, glad I found the seeds again.
