The Chili Tepin Pepper, a small yet fiery variety, defies its size with an impressive punch of heat. Affectionately known as "bird's eye peppers" due to their petite size and round shape, these peppers thrive in both garden beds and containers, thanks to their adaptable nature and bushy growth. Chili Tepin Plants maintain a manageable size while yielding an abundance of fruit, typically reaching a height of 1 to 3 feet. They transition from a vibrant green to eye-catching red as they mature.

With a Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) range of 50,000 to 100,000, Birds Eye Chili Peppers are perfect for spice enthusiasts. Beyond their heat, they are versatile in various culinary uses. When dried in the sun, Chili Tepin Peppers can be ground into powder or flakes, becoming a lively seasoning that elevates the flavor of many dishes. From salsas to hot sauces, these peppers add a satisfying amount of spice.

I won't know about the peppers until the weather is conducive for planting. There was a glitch in the shipping ad I got a cancelation notice before finding out another carrier was bringing them.

  • 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.
