Do you think the only peppers worth eating need to set your mouth on fire? Well, the Manganji from Japan may have a bone to pick with you. This sweet (SWEET) and mild-flavored pepper may not be spicy (like at all), but what it may lack in spice it more than makes up for with its versatility.

These pepper plants are prolific producers of these 6" long pods. This green pepper has a softer wall than a bell pepper but is thicker than similar Fushimi and Shishito varieties.

The king of chili peppers in Japan, you can do just about anything with this pepper – roast it, braise with it, grill it, fry it…you get the point! In addition to being sweet, it has an earthy flavor that makes this a fun ingredient to experiment with – even pairing well with chocolate. In fact, Chef Koyama, a Japanese chef features the Manganji pepper in one of his award-winning chocolates, making for a perfect blend of salty and bitter tones.

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.
