Chile IntroductionCultivation InstructionsSeed Saving Instructions
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. Take care not to touch your eyes when removing seeds from hot chiles.
