The Aconcagua pepper is a very sweet and very LARGE heirloom pepper named after the beautiful mountain in Argentina, where the pepper originated!

Aconcagua pepper plants can grow close to 3 ft. tall and will likely need to be supported because the pods are heavy. To put in perspective how heavy Aconcagua chilis are, the pods can grow to as long as 12” and 2.5" wide! The giant, cone-shaped Aconcagua pepper will ripen from green to orange to a red color, and you can eat it at any stage, but it’s the juiciest at its full ripe red stage.

You will taste a delicious, fruity flavor (some say it tastes like apples) and you can expect a crisp crunch when you bite it fresh. Try adding this pepper as a topping for your next burger grill-out!

Growing well, these will be caged for sure. Seedlings have big leaves and fairly thin stem.

Getting Started

  • 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.
