The Italian Roaster Peppers, also known as Long Hot Peppers, Italian Long Peppers, or Italian Long Hots, are a tasty mild pepper variety that everyone loves to put in their cooking, and it’s especially a favorable pepper in homemade Italian cooking.

The long red chili plant will grow to 1-1/2 to 2 ft. tall, and the pods can be ready for harvest in 70 to 80 days. Growing to 6-8", you can do a lot of tasty cooking with these peppers. The Italian Roaster is a long skinny pepper that is slightly wrinkled and often curvy, ripening from green to red when they reach maturity. Their shape can look awkward and strange, but that’s what makes the Italian Long Hot pepper so special!

These long red hot peppers have a unique flavor profile as they are sweet with a mild spice, but you will never forget their smoky sweetness when charred. These are perfect to make for stuffed long hot peppers, salads, pizzas, sandwiches, grilling, or whatever your heart desires!

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.
