Santa Fe Grande Pepper Seeds
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.
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)

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.
