A mildly hot poblano type pepper. With the shape of a heart, it matures from green to dark chocolate brown. Perfect for salsa, roasting and stuffing. 3” wide, 6” long. 300mg ~ 50 seeds.

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.
