A beautiful ornamental hybrid coming from Hungary, the Mexican Sunrise F1 is an AAS-award-winning pepper that brings a calming display of serene colors right to your garden.

These plants, which grow rapidly to a height of 2 ft. tall, are prolific producers of these conical-shaped peppers that grow to 6-7” in length and have incredibly thick walls. The colors are what amazes people: watch as these peppers start green, then change to yellow, then to orange, and finally to sunset red as they reach maturity.

While these stunning peppers look great in any garden, you can use these peppers in fresh foods and salads, as well as infused in hot sauces and salsas. Mexican Sunrise peppers are also great for drying into a nice, semi-hot chili powder to sprinkle on meats, sides, and other grilled food.

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.
