100 Percent Germination For These Ghost Pepper Seeds

As to be expected with David's Garden seeds, I got 100% germination for the 8 ghost pepper seeds that I planted. I really should stop planting so many seeds when I use David's; I end up pulling up the extras in each container. Will update when they fruit, they sprouted quickly.

With the hot peppers I recommend soaking them in black tea for 30 minutes. it really seems to help germination time, for example: I planted some habanero's without this method, and they took ~4 weeks to sprout. These sprouted in under 10 days with a good black tea soak (i.e. Lipton original). Just make sure it is cooled down first.

Ghost Peppers aka Bhut Jolokia
by: Juanita

Ghost Peppers also known as Bhut Jolokia are more than hot enough for me. I have never heard of the tea soaking but glad it works. We start ours in trays of dirt in the greenhouse and they germinate fine but do take weeks to germinate. Thank you for choosing David's Garden Seeds®.
