Pepper Seeds - Hot - Japanese - Santaka. Heirloom, Non-GMO. Capsicum annuum. 70-80 days. Warm season annual. Santaka is a Japanese hot pepper that is from the Tochigi prefecture. The variety was released in 1955. It is spicy, good uniformity, and high yielding. Easy to harvest and dry peppers. Approximately 7,500 seeds / oz.
Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil warm until emergence. Seeds will not germinate in cool soil and planting out too early may affect plant vigor. Harden off plants carefully before transplanting. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Transplant in late spring/early summer in a very warm and sunny location (soil temperatures at least above 60°F). Fertilize as needed. Too much nitrogen will produce lush foliage and few fruits. Harvest the green fruits directly from the plant. To dry red ripe peppers, cut branches, remove leaves and hang until fruit is dry. Use in stir-fries, curries and soups. Combine the fresh green and dried red for the best flavor. Freeze fresh peppers for use throughout the year. Use dried peppers in shichimi togarashi, rubs for smoked meat and hot sauces.
