The Manzano Red is said to originate from Central and South America and is a unique pepper plant to grow. Manzano means apple in Spanish, and it is very similar to the apple.

The chili plant looks like an apple tree, and the peppers look like apples in look and consistency when grown. Manzano pepper plants are resistant to low temperatures and adapt well to 45-60 degrees Fahrenheit, performing well in partial shade. What is more unique is the peppers have furry leaves and black seeds. Grown to about one to two inches in length and ripening from green to a warm orange color when mature, this Manzano Pepper is a great pepper if you want something sweet with a kick!

The Red Manzano Pepper has a sweet, tangy, and juicy taste mixed with some heat. It is firm and thick in consistency and will take a while to build until the spice suddenly kicks in and burns you. This is an excellent pepper for stuffing, making a sauce or paste, or sprinkling over your dinner.

  • 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.
