Pequin Pepper Seeds ( 100 days)

.25 grams per seed package/Seed Package Contains Approx. 30-45 heirloom pepper seeds.


Pequin peppers are originally believed to have come from Mexico long ago. 

They are a tiny Chile at only 1" long, but don't let that fool you they pack a punch! 

A wallop is more like it.  Pequin is 50,000+ on the Scoville Heat Unit Scale. 

Plants are semi-annual in areas without hard freezes. 

Pequin peppers can grow 4' tall.

Peppers change from green, to orange and finally red.

Very closely related to the wild Tepin Chile. 

Used in Mexico to create spicy dishes.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Hot Peppers:

Start these vegetable seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before your last frost date.  Be sure to keep them in a warm place so that the soil temperature stays above 75°.  Young heirloom pepper plants like it to stay warm and will develope best if kept happy.

Only transplante after the heirloom pepper seedlings have shown several sets of their true leaves and only once you are sure the outside soil temperature is consistently above 65°.  

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
