 can Grow as ornamental - One of the most beautiful chili peppers!

Species: Capsicum chinense | Origin: Peru | Heat: very hot

An exotic cross between the Bhut Jolokia and Pimenta de Neyde . Unusually beautiful still unstable variety which can have dark purple stripes along the pod under a direct exposure to sun.
Even the shaded pods have beautiful colors varying between green-peach-purple or all at once!
These pods are very hot and have a lovely aroma which makes them not just very pretty but great for all around cooking too!
Highly recommended for growers who want to grow something unusual!

Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors until soil is warm.
Pepper varieties come from tropical humid regions. The temperature, moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds. Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products. Use Organic Seed Starting Material for best germination results.
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.
Growing Peppers:
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 – 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 2″ thick layer of compost.
Growing Peppers in Containers
Peppers can be grown all year long in containers. It is suitable for apartment dwellers and gardeners who live in cool regions where the number of growing days are limited. Many pepper enthusiast grow peppers in pots so they can have fresh peppers all year long. It’s best to use 5 gallon containers so the roots do not get too over-crowded
Soil Requirements:
Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.
Water Requirements:
Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.
Fertilizer Requirements:
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
Harvest Tips:
Harvest hot peppers when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so you don't damage the plant. Pick peppers as they mature to encourage new buds to form.

Still Enjoying The Fruits Of Last Summer’s Labor…

There is no company, large or small, I trust more for buying seeds! The plants grown from your Tiger Dragon, Jalapeno and Thai pepper seeds all germinated and grew into healthy, flourishing plants. Since we like our food hot-hot-hot we were not disappointed, especially, loved the Dragon Tigers which pickled perfectly and I chop up to put into anything I want an extra kick of heat. Can’t wait to try some if your other offerings.
