75-80 days. Fresno Chili Hot Pepper Seeds. Capsicum annuum. Non-GMO. Heirloom. Similar in shape, size, and heat content to the world-famous jalapeno, Fresno chili seeds grow a distinct New Mexico-style chili that changes color from green to red as the pepper fully matures. Average heat of 5,000-10,000 SHU. Like all New Mexico varieties, Fresno chili seeds produce unique pointed fruits and grow upright for harvest, as opposed to the jalapeno whose fruits are rounded and hanging. ~5,000 seeds/oz.
Pepper is a heat-loving crop that does not perform well in shade or cold soils. Seeds are best if started indoors 4-6 weeks prior to final spring frost for transplanting. Sow 2-3 seeds 1/4" deep per cell or peat pot in fertile, Organically rich, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Seeds germinate in 7-21 days, transplanting best starts 12-18" apart in the garden or one plant per container.
Pepper plants thrive in pots and containers with a phosphorus-rich potting mix and will benefit from staking and support as they become top-heavy during fruit production.
Fresno Chile Peppers will grow 18"-24" tall and bear 2-3" long peppers.
Fresno Chili Pepper in the Vegetable Garden
Pepper is one of the most diverse, showy, and flavorful fruits grown in the annual garden bed. Available in nearly every possible color and shape from the super sweet to super spicy, pepper grows stronger and tastes better with a season of full sun and high heat. Pepper plants thrive in pots and containers and can even perennially overwinter in warm enough regions, maturing into bushy, vibrant, and well-stemmed patio favorites.
Harvesting Fresno Chili Hot Pepper
Some sweet and bell peppers can be harvested as soon as 60-70 days, but most hot varieties are ready about 100 days from sowing or when skin has changed color. Know the individual variety you are sowing to know when color has reached ripeness. Peppers can be picked early to ripen indoors or left to ripen and change color on the vine. Using a knife or shears, carefully snip off peppers while leaving some stem attached to the fruit. If working with hot peppers, wear gloves to avoid skin contact with capsaicin.
After 75-80 days, harvest peppers and keep them in refrigeration for maximum storage. These peppers are excellent grilled or used to add spice to any sauce or dish.
Fresno Chili peppers are an excellent addition to home gardens for some extra spice and vibrance. Peppers are hot with smooth red skin. They are 2-3" long and 1.25" wide with green stems. Plants grow to be 24-30" tall with thick dark green foliage.
Like many peppers, they start out green, go to orange and finally red.
Looking for a medium hot pepper that won't burn your mouth, but will still kick a punch? Then Fresno Chile Pepper is a perfect choice.
