•American grown seeds
•Easy to Grow
Hot Cherry Peppers are great for container gardens. These hot peppers are rated between 3,000- 5,000 on the Scoville scale. As a pepper plant that produces continuously over a long season, hot cherry peppers are an heirloom variety and date back to the 1500s. Red Hot Cherry Peppers can be stored for about two weeks and then should be preserved. These peppers taste excellent pickled and are often found in specialty food stores as pickled cherry peppers.
They can be sown outdoors in early summer when the soil remains above 65 degrees F, but indoor germination is recommended. Indoors, start 6-8 weeks before planting date. Sow seeds into flat at a rate of 4 seeds/inch and then pot up into 2” or larger cells/pots after the first set of true leaves appear. For growing transplants, maintain temperature at around 75°F during the day and 65°F at night. Harden off plants by slightly reducing temperature to 60-65°F and reducing water for 2-3 days before transplanting. Peppers prefer light, well drained, moderately fertile soil with pH 6.5-6.8. Use a high phosphorus starter fertilizer when transplanting to give young peppers a good start. Keep nitrogen levels in moderation, as high amounts can reduce yields.
