Santa Fe Grande Pepper - One of our most popular seeds. All three colors of maturity, yellow, orange, and red, can be on the plant at the same time. A beautiful plant and quite a conversation piece.

The Santa Fe Grande pepper is also known as chile guero, (translated to blonde chile) in Mexico. This wax-type heirloom pepper bears fruit continuously all summer on 30" plants. The fresh 3" long peppers have thick flesh and moderate heat, so they are ideal for salsa and pickling fresh. They mature from bright green to yellow, and then to a glossy red. Capsicum annuum (78 days)

Open-pollinated - Heirloom

Heat Level: Medium  Scoville 3000-5000

~ Packet contains 30 seeds. 

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are yellow. If left on the plant they will turn orange and then red at full maturity.


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Waiting!

Have not germinated after 15 days...still waiting.

Hi Carl!

Be patient and keep them warm! Pepper seeds germinate best at 80-90˚ F, and some can take as long as 21+ days to germinate, so don't give up on them. You should be seeing sprouts soon! Happy growing!

Pleasant surprise

I got these thinking they were the mild big box brand and was very happy that they are a medium heat. Full of flavor, smoky sweet when mature. Great for poppers or pickled or fresh. Easy to grow, flowers easily, produces above average, fruits take a little longer to mature, easy to sprout when directions are followed.
My new fave

Love this pepper

Another winner! Love having green, yellow and red peppers on the same plant. Mild enough to use raw in salads and threw in all the colors in a refrigerator pickle recipe--was pretty and tasty!

Wow! Beautiful and Prolific!

I loved having this beautiful large Santa Fe Grand pepper plants in our garden. Nearly all of the Santa Fe pepper seeds I planted germinated. I use a heat mat to keep them warm, and it works like a charm. They were loaded with peppers in a range of colors from yellow to bright cherry red. We make lots of Santa Fe "poppers" from them, stuffing them with cream cheese and throwing them on the grill to heat. We also added our Santa Fe peppers to lots of salsas over the course of the summer, as well as our hashbrowns on Sunday mornings. Who doesn't like spicy hashbrowns? :) I will be growing these gorgeous Santa Fe Grand Pepper plants every year going forward, they were the highlight of my vegetable garden.
