Small, crinkled, and with a shiny golden hue, there’s no surprise where the name of these peppers came from. Golden Nugget peppers arrived from Pontiac, Michigan by grower Martha Perry, and these plants produce some tiny, beautiful, miniature peppers.

These plants are compact and grow to about a foot-and-a-half tall, bearing many little fruits that barely grow to 3/4” in length. Watch as these peppers start green, turning to a very dark purple before lighting up and ripening to their signature golden orange color at maturity. They do, in fact, look like little golden nuggets – small, lantern-shaped, and shiny!

Golden Nugget pepper plants are great ornamental plants to put wherever you see fit; however, many people use these peppers for their incredible spiciness and fruity flavors. Use these peppers sparingly, as their heat can reach up to 50,000 SHUs! Chop peppers into fresh foods and salads or dry them into a nice spicy powder.

  • 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.
