(Capsicum annuum) Tiny lustrous red bird peppers borne on decorative
12" plants. Fruits look lovely strung up like
cranberries. Native to southwest Texas. Introduced
in 1813 by Bernard McMahon from seeds given him
by Thomas Jefferson. Ideal for container growing;
plants can be overwintered indoors. 90 days from
transplant. MEDIUM HOT
8 weeks before last frost
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Peppers germinate best
in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful
until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors
until soil is warm.
