Hailing from China and Southeast Asia, the Kilian Pepper is an early-maturing Cayenne variety that provides great flavor and a unique orange color that makes for some beautiful growing in your garden!

Grow these Kilian pepper plants and watch them produce bounties of these stringy pods that stretch up to 2-3" long. These peppers are incredibly skinny with smooth texture and thin skin. You'll see these peppers ripen from green to their bright orange color when they're ready to be harvested.

These tender Kilian peppers have a nice juicy flavor with a nice kick of heat that reaches levels up to 27,000 SHUs - on par with the likes of low-grade Thai peppers! Kilians lend themselves nicely to a wide variety of uses - whatever you can dream up, they make a great addition. Try adding them fresh to salads, cook them in with stir-fries and soups, or grind their thin skins up into a fresh chili powder!

Getting Started

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.
