Criolla De Cocina seeds (Capsicum annuum) sweet pepper
Here is the Criolla de cocina Pepper, Capsicum annuum, Scoville units: 000 SHU. This Pepper originates from Nicaragua. It is a unique variety in the it is a sweet pepper that resembles something between a bell pepper and a habanero. They can reach the same size of a bell pepper but are thin walled with a much richer flavor! One plant can produce dozens of peppers. This variety likes plenty of sun and hot temperatures. Open pollinated 75 days.
Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil. Almost all peppers have the same requirements for successful growth. Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil â and make sure they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week. In many ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.
At Planting Time:
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2â³ thick layer of compost.
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.
Seeds arrived in about two weeks. All were well marked and packaged. Will be planting today. Overall good experience but shipping was super spendy for 3 tiny seed packets, especially through the mail
