The Death Spiral Chile or the "Death Pepper" is a new strain of pepper that emerged from the United Kingdom a few years ago. The Death Spiral manifested its way into the hot pepper market and took the pepper community by storm.

Pepper plants can grow up to 4 ft. tall and produce nice yields of these super hot peppers that are loaded with capsaicin oil, dripping between the inner walls of the pepper. The inner skin of these peppers is light brown in color, which foreshadows the burn that is about to ensue. The ripening stages are very unique compared to other chili peppers. In the early stages, it starts at a light green, then changes to light peach, finishing with a vibrant red and orange color. Since this is a relatively new strain, expect some variability.

Flavor seems to vary with these peppers. Most peppers are fruity with citrus undertones, while some are floral with extreme heat. Nevertheless, this pepper is ridiculously hot and exciting to grow! You won't be disappointed.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
