Planting Instructions


Prepare the Soil: Till the soil to a depth of 6-8 inches and remove any weeds or debris. Amend the soil with organic matter, such as compost or aged manure, to improve drainage and nutrient content.

Sow the Seeds: Sow the black chili pepper seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Fill seed starting trays or pots with a sterile seed starting mix and moisten the soil. Sow the seeds ¼ inch deep and cover them lightly with soil.

Provide Warmth and Moisture: Place the seed trays or pots in a warm location, ideally with a temperature between 70-80°F. Keep the soil moist but not soggy.

Thin the Seedlings: Once the seedlings have two true leaves, thin them to allow for proper air circulation and prevent overcrowding.

Harden Off the Seedlings: Gradually acclimate the seedlings to outdoor conditions by exposing them to increasing amounts of sunlight and wind for several days before transplanting.

Care Instructions

Watering: Provide black chili pepper plants with consistent moisture, especially during hot, dry periods. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.

Fertilizing: Fertilize black chili pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season using a balanced fertilizer. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package for application rates and timing.

Support: Taller black chili pepper plants may need support, such as stakes or cages, to prevent them from falling over.

Pest and Disease Control: Monitor black chili pepper plants for common pests, such as aphids, whiteflies, and hornworms. Use organic pest control methods whenever possible.

Harvesting Instructions

Harvesting Time: Harvest black chili peppers when they have reached their desired color and heat level, typically 80-100 days after planting. The peppers should be dark brown to black and firm to the touch.

Harvesting Method: Use sharp scissors or a knife to carefully cut the chili peppers off the plant, leaving a small portion of the stem attached.

Handling: Handle black chili peppers with care, as the oils from hot peppers can irritate skin and eyes.

Drying: Black chili peppers can be dried to preserve their flavor and heat. To dry them, thread them onto a needle and hang them in a warm, dry place. Alternatively, you can dehydrate them in a food dehydrator.

Storage: Dried black chili peppers can be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to a year. Fresh black chili peppers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
