Chile de Arbol peppers are a small cayenne-looking variety hailing from Mexico. Their name means "tree chili" in Spanish because of its long wooden stem and includes several nicknames such as bird's beak chilies or rat's tail chiles.

The Chile de Arbol pepper plant grows over 4 ft. tall and is highly productive, growing bounties of these 2-4" long peppers. It matures from green to bright red and retains its color after drying.

This small, slender, curved, bright red pepper is a popular pepper to use in many cuisines! The Chile De Arbol Pepper is typically dried and produces the best flavor when you dry them. Delivering a quick heat punch, this pepper has fruity, smoky, and nutty tones, which makes it a great addition to add to salsas, sauces, soups, and stews. Try this in your next meal for delicious flavors!

100% Germination

My plants are too young for the peppers to be growing yet but they look beautiful so far. Germination went perfectly. I'm a happy camper.

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.

  • 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.
