The iconic Peter Pepper was given its name for its...well...unique shape. This novelty pepper has lived in infamy for quite some time. It's primarily grown for ornamental purposes rather than culinary use, although it still has great flavor and can be used in cooking like other chili peppers.

Peter Pepper plants will shoot up to 3 ft. tall and produce loads of these 4-6" long average-sized peppers. As the name implies, this pepper is shaped very realistically - so much so that it was judged as the "most pornographic pepper" by the Organic Gardening Magazine. This heirloom chili is absolutely the novelty of your garden.

Besides being a real conversation piece, the Peter Pepper has a thick fleshy pod that has a medium heat level with Scoville Heat Units ranging from 10,000-23,000. The taste is similar to a Jalapeno but with a slight sweet flavor. Add this to your dishes for a spicy kick!

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.
