A solid black pepper that matures to red! Fruits are a bit larger than jalapeños, and the heat level is similar. Allowing peppers to turn fully red increases their heat significantly. Rich roasting pepper flavor. Incredibly productive. Grown by Groundwork in Paonia, CO.
Planting Instructions: Start indoors under lights 3-6 weeks before last spring frost. Transplant after all danger of frost has passed, spaced 2' apart. Keep soil slightly moist but do not overwater.
Seed Saving Instructions: Use gloves to avoid burning skin! Remove seeds from the tastiest, fully mature fruit. Or use a blender with a very low setting-- place fruits with plenty of water and slowly blend. Strain out seeds. Dry seeds on a screen or cloth. Store seeds in a paper or mesh bag in a cool, dark and dry location.
