Grow rare Morita peppers right in your own garden! With a rare look as if the peppers were smoked right off the plant, these pods surprisingly pack a lot of flavors! Also known as "little blackberry" or "pepper blackberry" in Spanish, these are a popular variety found in a lot of Mexican cuisines, and you'll be glad to have added this plant to your garden!

Morita pepper plants typically reach around 3 ft. tall and produce good yields of these small 2" skinny pods. Their raisin-like texture makes them look similar to Chipotle peppers, except the Morita Chili Peppers are colored dark red/purple and are smoked for less time which leaves them softer and retains their flavor. Watch these pods ripen from green to their red mature color when they're ready to be picked!

The Morita Pepper is a smoked, fiery, red-ripe pepper that you can use to create any kind of authentic dish. Used primarily in Mexican cuisines, the dried Morita Chiles is a mix of fruity and smokey with some mild spice. Some say they taste tones of raspberry, cherry, and tomato! The Morita grows to one to two inches tall and ripens from green to red.

    Great germination

    I have had great germination with this pepper. My plans are to grind this pepper into seasoning. So far so good.

    • 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.
