The Challeano pepper is perfect for those looking for something very hot but with a nice citrusy flavor palette. Resembling other pendant-shaped peppers, Challeanos are a favorite commonly used to spice up fresh foods.

Reaching up to 3 ft. tall, these pepper plants are highly productive, producing heavy yields of 4” long fruits shaped like miniature pendants and bearing semi-wrinkled skin. Challeano peppers mature from their original pale to yellow-green, to their mature reddish-pink color.

Challeanos have the perfect crunchy texture to use in fresh foods, but only if you can withstand their fiery heat! Once you get past that, you’ll enjoy the delightfully fruity flavors of citrus and berry overtones. Their juicy flesh makes Challeano peppers great chopped up into fresh foods or salsa, made into a fruity and fiery homemade sauce, or even dried into a nice pepper powder!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • 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.
