Nothing says summer in the Midwest like tall corn fields, Cubs baseball games, and delicious pickled Sport Peppers on top of a classic Chicago dog. But, let’s be honest – no matter where you are or which team you’re rooting for, these Sport Pepper seeds are a must-have to grow in your garden!

Sport Peppers grow on super sturdy plants that stretch up to 3 ft. tall, producing an abundance of slender, pointed fruit that looks like a slightly larger version of a Tabasco Pepper. Pods will turn from green to red when they mature.

The sporty name of this pepper is in honor of its most popular use as a pickled topping for Chicago hot dogs at the ballpark. However, these peppers are often pickled and once pickled - well, it seems the ways to use them are pretty much infinite. Think sandwiches, Italian beef roast, pizza, and hot dogs, of course.

  • 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.
