Thai Hot - Their fiery zing adds incredible heat and spiciness to Asian cuisine! This plant blossoms profusely and produces a bounty of small heirloom peppers that grow in an upright direction. This small plant is ideal for container gardens. 

The thin-skinned 1-1/2" peppers grow upright on small 18" plants. They mature from green to red. Capsicum frutescens (90 days)

Heat level: Extra Hot. Scoville Heat Units 50,000 - 100,000

 ~ Packet contains 10 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, 36” apart or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are green or red.

Love these hot peppers!

Tasty, hot flavor – I love using these for drying and crushing into hot pepper flakes for the table year-round. Beautiful plants, too, almost ornamental.
