How to grow Chili pepper 'Chilipeno'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Chilipeno is thought of as tender, so it is really important to ensure that the outside temperature is well above freezing before planting or moving outdoors. Chilipeno needs a loamy and sandy soil with a ph of 7.0 to 8.5 (neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil).

Growing Chilipeno from seed

Look to ensure a distance 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) between seeds when sowing - bury at a depth of at least 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) deep. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

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

Transplanting Chilipeno

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