Looking for a big, juicy pepper that packs some heat? Look no further than Big Jim! This medium-hot pepper is perfect for stuffing, grilling, or adding to your favorite chili recipe. With tapered fruits averaging 8 inches in length and 24-40 pods per plant, you'll be able to stock up on the heat this summer.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Peppers generally have long growing seasons and grow slowly during cool temperatures. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring. A week before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Peppers are less cold tolerant than tomatoes.
