Detailed Product Info

Don't let the sweet yellow looks deceive you, this is one powerful little pepper! Large, vigorous plants yield copious amounts of wrinkled fruits. (One plant is plenty for a home garden!) A few weeks after setting fruit the little green fruits start to turn yellow. It might be the color, but we swear this hot little pepper is citrusy too. If you like a bit of heat, one pepper is enough for a pot of chili, use more if you are a fiend. This pepper also makes a great hot sauce.

Growing Instructions

Start indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost in very warm spot (80 degrees is ideal). Keep seedlings in a well-ventilated place at 70+ degrees and do not over water. Transplant outdoors in full sun into rich, well drained soil after threat of frost has passed. Peppers can tolerate dryness and heat, but need moderate water to produce fruit and prefer to be watered at the base.
