Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Chili Grande is thought of as tender, so it is really important to plant out well after your last frost date. Ideally plant in loamy and sandy soil and try to keep the ph of your soil between the range of 7.0 and 8.5 as Chili Grande likes to be in neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Chili Grande from seed

Sow at a depth of approx. 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) between Chili pepper plants. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Chili Grande about 38 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Chili Grande

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Chili Grande is a tender plant.
