Chile IntroductionCultivation InstructionsSeed Saving Instructions
One of the great Native American contributions to the cuisines of the world. 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. To improve germination: soak seeds 24 hrs in 1c. water w/1 drop vinegar. Seeds are slow to sprout 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. Wash hands WELL after handling.
