Gochujang King Hot Korean Peppers are a popular variety out of Korea used to make their traditional chili paste called gochujang. These long, slender peppers are very similar to jalapenos but with more spice and pungency that will fire up your taste buds!

These pepper plants will grow up to 3 ft. tall and produce good yields of these 6” long pendant-shaped pods. Gochujang King Korean peppers will take some time to ripen from green to a bright red and don a smooth and shiny flesh.

These peppers are best used for making homemade sauce and chili pastes like gochujang. You can also dry and grind these peppers into a chili powder called gochugaru used in many Korean cuisines. Or, you can cook Gochujang King peppers in stir-fries or roasts for added heat!

So far so good

I had really good germination with these. We will see as the season progresses how the plants do.

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.
