  • NuMex Twilight Days to Maturity: 80-90 days

About NuMex Twilight Hot Pepper Vegetable Garden Seeds

Non-GMO NuMex Twilight hot pepper seeds grow a full sun, warm weather crop that can be started indoors or sown directly after your regional frost. For earliest starts, begin indoors 8-10 weeks prior to final frost and harden off plants before transplanting. Sow 2-3 NuMex Twilight seeds ¼” deep per cell or 6-8” apart in the garden in organically rich and well-drained soil in full sun. Hot pepper seeds germinate in 7-21 days, thinning back to one plant per pot or 18-24” apart in the garden once second set of true leaves establish. Capsicum annuum is a full sun annual tolerant to many difficult soils and climates. Allow soil to dry between waterings since saturation makes hot peppers susceptible to fungal and bacteria spotting.

Non-GMO NuMex Twilight seeds mature in about 80-90 days into a tidy annual 18-24" tall that will first develop purple ornamental chilis, changing to yellow and orange during the ripening process, and finally red when ready to harvest.
