Red Peter Pepper Seeds (Capsicum annuum) Penis Pepper,
100+ days. Capsicum annuum. Plant produces good yields of 3 Â¼" long by 1" wide penis shaped peppers. Peppers are mildly hot and turn from green to red when mature. Plant has green stems, green leaves, and white flowers.
Peter pepers are adaptable to a variety of growing conditions.
The peter pepper, particularly the red variety, has been described as a "miniature replica of the circumcised male organ". The pod of the pepper is wrinkled and has a round tip with a cleft. Peter peppers are approximately 3 to 4 inches in length, and 1 to 1.5 inches wide when
fully mature. The pod of the pepper has also been noted for its pungency.
The unusually phallic shaped fruits of the penis pepper resemble human penises when fully ripe. In addition to the conversation value of this pepper, it has a variety of uses including salsas and ground pepper. Peter peppers are prolific producers! The penis pepper heat level ranges between 5,000 and 30,000 scoville units which is hotter than Tabasco and even hotter than the Jalapeno.
Sow seeds indoors Â¼" deep. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors until soil is warm.
Pepper varieties come from tropical humid regions. The temperature, moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds. Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products. Use Organic Seed Starting Material for best germination results.
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.
Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil. Almost all peppers have the same requirements for successful growth. Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil â and make sure they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week. In many ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.
At Planting Time:
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2â³ thick layer of compost.
Peppers do very well grown in pots.
whole spicy peppers (whatever youâve got)
for the brine
1 part water to 1 part white vinegar
(start with 2 cups to 2 cups, then keep adding if you have more peppers)
spices for the jars
- 1 garlic clove, peeled
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons black peppercorns
- 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
Bring brine mixture to a boil. Wash peppers and pack jars tightly, adding spices to each jar. Pour boiling brine over peppers and spices using a ladle and canning funnel. Process jars in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
Or you can just make a jar or two and skip the processing by just putting them straight into the fridge.
Wait a couple weeks, at least, before eating
