Pepper, Xigole (Capsicum frutescens), Packet of 10 Seeds, Organic
Family: Nightshade (Solanacea)
~50,000 Scoville Heat Units
Annual. 90 days to maturity
(Soltero, meaning “bachelor,” an allusion to the shape of the fruit and the tendency to remain erect.) Traditional type from the mountains of Oaxaca. Very hot, red when ripe, small, barely tapering, upturned on the plant. Good choice for potted culture. Tends to overwinter readily (with protection, of course!) Cultivation: Peppers prefer a scanty, even water supply, good drainage, full sun, and a long, hot summer. Start indoors 40 to 50 days prior to the last frost. Thin seedlings to at least 2 inches apart in the flat. Transplant out to garden after the soil has really warmed up. Space plants 2 feet apart.
