65-70 days. Bulgarian Carrot Hot Pepper Seeds Capsicum annuum. Non-GMO. Heirloom. Native to Bulgaria before bring brought to America in the 1970s and 1980s, Bulgarian Carrot peppers seeds (sometimes also called Shripka peppers) are known not only for their distinctive carrot-like appearance but also their unique flavor and heat profile. When cared for properly, Bulgarian Carrot seeds produce peppers that are a delightful combination of hot and sweet. ~5,000 seeds/oz.
How to Grow Bulgarian Carrot Hot Peppers from Seed
Due to its Bulgarian origins, this variety of pepper is adapted to growing in slightly cooler conditions than other peppers that are native to hotter regions; because of this, they can be grown even in locations that have cooler-than-average spring and summer seasons.
It‚s recommended to start the seeds indoors in early spring, sowing them 1/4‚ deep and keeping them moist until germination. Once the seeds have sprouted, they can be moved into either larger pots or directly into the rich soil of a vegetable garden (with at least 18‚ of spacing between the individual plants).
Bulgarian Carrot Hot Peppers in the Vegetable Garden
Bulgarian Carrot Hot Peppers are a great addition to any garden, particularly if you live in a climate well-suited for growing peppers.
These peppers are typically grown in garden beds with rich soil and good drainage, but can also do very well in large pots that get full sun during the day.
Upright mature plants bear clusters of small peppers that are 2-3‚ length and turn bright orange when ripe.
Rated between 5,000-30,000 on the Scoville scale, the crisp and fruity peppers that grow from these seeds are a popular addition to salsas, chutneys, hot sauces, marinades, and many other culinary dishes.
Harvesting Bulgarian Carrot Hot Peppers
You will know these peppers are ready to harvest because they will have a length of 2 - 3‚ and will transition from a dark green color to a much brighter and more vibrant orange color (which causes them to resemble small carrots, hence their nickname of ‚“carrot peppers‚).
As with most types of peppers, it‚s often best to snip the fruit from the plant with shears (leaving a small amount of stem behind on the plant) while also trying to minimize skin contact with the peppers themselves due to the high levels of capsaicin contained in the flesh of the fruit.
