Rumor is that the Bulgarian Carrot Pepper was smuggled out of Russia during the late 1980s, and made its way through Europe, the Caribbean, and then the United States!

This compact plant grows up to 2 ft tall and does well growing in containers as well as in cooler climates. The fruity pepper grows to three to four inches tall and resembles a bright orange carrot, with its pointy shape and fluorescent orange skin. They ripen from green to yellow, and then finally orange.

The Bulgarian Carrot has a crunchy texture with a sweet yet tangy flavor, and they produce a burst of heat. these peppers are great for salsas, roasting, stir fry, and grilling.

So far, all we’ve gotten to is strong little seedlings. Once the weather stays warmer and doesn’t dip into the 40s, we’ll transfer them to outdoor planters. Looking forward to trying this new to us pepper.

  • 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.
