Matures In 70 Days From Setting Out Transplants

Very hot, thick-walled peppers 3 inches long by 1 to 1-½ inches wide. Good used fresh, cooked, pickled and dried.

SOWING…Plant seed indoors 6 to 8 weeks before danger of frost is past. May also be planted directly outdoors after last frost. Plant seed 1 inch apart and cover with ¼ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Place seed starting tray in a very warm spot (both night and day) and cover with frame of glass or polyethylene to preserve moisture until seeds start to grow.

THINNING…When plants are 2 to 3 inches tall, thin or transplant 2 inches apart in another tray. After danger of frost is past, transplant outdoors in rows 2 to 3 feet apart, spacing plants 18 to 24 inches in the row.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 12 to 21 days depending on soil and temperature conditions.

REMARKS…Many gardeners hold off heavy fertilization until the first blossom produces a small fruit which is picked off. Pepper plants produce more fruit if kept picked and not allowed to ripen. Cut instead of pulling from plant to avoid injury.
