The Dragon's Toe Pepper comes to us all the way from Southern China. This uniquely wrinkly hybrid pepper has an excellent flavor and pungency used in a lot of different fresh or cooked Asian foods.

Dragon's Toe pepper plants grow an abundance of these wrinkly pods that stretch as far as 5" long. Pods will change colors from green to red and have a distorted pendant shape to them when they reach maturity. This is an unusual variety that looks incredibly stunning and can be a great ornamental addition to your garden or patio.

The flavor of the Dragon's Toe Pepper is incredibly sweet, but with a kick. This pepper can get pretty hot, with heat levels soaring up to 100,000 SHUs! They make a great addition to stir fry or salads, as well as roasted or grilled. Give them a try – you won’t regret it!

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.
