How to grow Chili pepper 'Thai'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Some varieties may need to be supported with a cane as the fruit develops.

Plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Thai 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. Thai needs a loamy and sandy soil with a ph of 7.0 to 8.5 (neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil).

Growing Thai 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 Thai about 42 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Thai

Transplant out when all danger of frost has passed.

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

By our calculations, you should look at planting out Thai about 0 days after your last frost date.

Harvesting Thai

This variety tends to be ready for harvesting by late summer.
