75 day -Tequila Sunrise - Open Pollinated ornamental pepper which can also be eaten!
Plants are very sturdy, will not require staking. Plants will grow up to 2' tall. The peppers are shaped somewhat like a fat carrot, and turn from green to golden orange or yellow when ripe. Carrots average 4-5" long and about an inch in diameter. The plants are very productive, and mine always produce reliably.
These are somewhat fleshy peppers, and nicely crunchy, so are very good for pickling, frying, or eating fresh. I also dehydrate some and grind up for seasonings.
Peppers must be started indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting outside, after all danger of frost has passed.
Peppers require a warm soil temperature to germinate, so are probably not suitable to start in cold frames unless the temperature can be maintained. Transplant to a well drained, richly amended site which receives full sun - peppers are sun lovers!
Keep evenly watered (about an inch each week) to ensure good pepper production. Each packet contains a minimum of 20 fresh viable seed, naturally produced for the 2014 season.

My seeds are harvested and cleaned by hand, and are fresh for the season specified. I never sell old seed. As a result of hand cleaning, there may be some small amount of "natural" material (chafe) included with your seeds, especially the tiny ones. Just plant it with your seeds!
All seeds & plants are produced using natural methods.
