One of the great Native American contributions to the cuisines of the world. A widely used fruit high in Vitamin C. Domesticated chiles vary profoundly in shape, size, color, pungency and flavor.Start seeds inside, 1/4" deep in sandy soil, 8-10 weeks before last frost. Seeds are slow to germinate and need warmth. Transplant seedlings 12-16" apart. Partial shade is best in low desert, full sun in cooler climates. Provide support.The insect-visited flowers can self-pollinate or cross. Grow only one variety at a time or isolate flowers. Allow fruit to ripen and mature on the plant. Chiles turn red or dark brown when mature.
