Tiny brilliantly, Pequin - A very tiny chile that packs some big heat. This native plant grows wild in the Southwest U.S. and Mexico.
“DO NOT LET THE SIZE FOOL YOU. IT IS HOT!”
Pequin Chilli is also known as Pequin Pepper or Chile Pequin. The Pequin chilli grows wild in Mexico and is almost 10 times hotter than a jalapeno.
The pods are very small and a slightly elongated oval. It starts of green and end up a bright red or red-orange, when it is fully mature. When you dry them they change colour to a brownish-red and the average size is 1-1.5 cm long and 0.5 cm wide, but do not let the size fool you. It is hot!
This chilli pepper is easy to grow and an amazing producer. It will look great in the garden, when it is full of little red pods.
Sow seeds indoors ¼" 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.
