Good Pequin Pepper Seeds

by Sally

I tried growing Chili Pequin and the ornamental seeds last year with no luck (can’t remember which vendor I bought the seeds from). Disappointed but determined, I decided to give them another try. My family loves chili and have planted several kinds in the past, with the Thai chili being the most successful. I’ve heard about the pequin from many chili enthusiasts which made me interested in the plant. I got the seeds on 5/6 and immediately tried two germination methods: baggy and the peat pellets. I failed at the peat pellets method as I forgot to water and they dried out. I checked on the baggies about 2wks in, which I left on top of my fridge, and nothing. In fact, it looked like a couple of the seeds were molding over. Disappointed, I threw the bags back up on the fridge. Yesterday, 6/2, I remembered that I needed to toss the bags out since I was sure they were all rotted by now. But no, low and behold, all the seeds germinated! And it seems I may have let them sit too long but oh well. I’ll be carefully transferring them into peat pellets tonight! I’m excited to see if these make it into adulthood and produce lots of fruit for me!

Chili Pequin Peppers

Chili Pequin peppers pack a whollop of heat into your mouth. I touched the seeds with my hand and it burned for 24 hours a few years ago. Never again. I always wear gloves now. Thank you for the kind words.
