How to grow Chili pepper 'Santa Fe'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Santa Fe is thought of as tender, so remember to wait until your soil is warm and the night time temperature is well above freezing before moving outside. Santa Fe needs a loamy and sandy soil with a ph of 7.0 to 8.5 (neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil).

Growing Santa Fe from seed

Try to aim for a seed spacing of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) and sow at a depth of around 0.2 inches (0.5 cm). Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

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

Transplanting Santa Fe

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