A wonderful, extra-early strain of the hottest of the hots! Compact, cold-tolerant plants yield extra-early, thick, 3″ cone-shaped fruits. Hottest when skins turn almost black.
CULTURE: Plant seeds in flats 6-8 weeks early. Allow for unrestricted growth. Transplant when ready, or growth can be stunted.
SUN: Provide plenty of light to avoid tall, leggy growth.
WATER: Avoid top-watering with cold water.
SOIL: Provide light, well-drained loam, rich in phosphorus and calcium, bonemeal or eggshells. Too much nitrogen will over-stimulate plant growth and inhibit fruit formation.
SEED PRODUCTION: Although peppers produce perfect, mostly self-pollinating flowers, they will cross. Grow only one variety at a time for seed in a Southwestern garden.
SUGGESTED Individual Portion: 1/2 Teaspoon.
