Compact, thick-walled fruits 4 in. long and 1 in. wide. Add this pepper to any Mexican dish-a must have for salsa.
Sow seeds in full sun once temps reach 70 or so. Sow 1/4" deep, keep seeds moist until germination, about 70-80 days to harvest.
Plants will grow 24-36" tall and should be spaced between 18-24" apart. Pests do not bother these!
Starts out green, then ripens to a bright red.
Plants grow 18-24 in height.
Most pepper plants are not bothered by aphids, cutworms or other pests. Just be sure to plant in full sun. Pepper plants usually need more water than other vegetables in the garden. Watch them and check for wilting leaves.
I use a fish emulsion as fertilizer starting when the plant is about 3" tall-50% solution. Once a month, I fertilize-they are heavy feeders.
