Wear rubber gloves when processing hot peppers and do not touch your eyes. If you are sensitive to the heat, make sure to wear a mask over your mouth and nose and protect your eyes.
Try adding this pepper to salsa recipes. You can also try making your own hot sauce with these peppers. Sauté them with olive oil, garlic, onion and salt, and after about 4 minutes add 2 cups of water. Heat the mixture for 20 minutes and then allow it to cool to room temperature before pureeing it in a food processor and adding vinegar.

- Start Indoors: 8 weeks before last frost
- Germination: 14 Days
- Plant Outdoors: 12-24” Apart

Great Taste and Productive
First time growing these, and despite crowding them too close together and the extreme humidity experienced this summer these were very productive. Lots of heat, but not too much heat. Will definitely grow them next year.

Very productive plant, grown in Colorado, zone 5a. Flavor experience was a wild ride of intense red bell pepper sweetness that transitions into a nice medium heat
