Thai peppers are known to deliver in terms of flavor and heat - and the Thai Compact Pepper is no different! These pepper plants deliver the same spicy peppers on a more compact plant that makes for versatile gardening and planting.

These pepper plants may reach up to 3 ft. tall, but generally hover around 2 ft. which makes them a perfect variety for container growing on your porch or patio. The Thai Compact plant grows plenty of these slender, ornamental peppers that grow up to 3" long. Pods will mature from green to red, but will have beautiful colors throughout the maturing process that will stand out from the crowd!

Thai Compact peppers are small-sized, fiery, hot peppers that’ll have a very spicy flavor and punch to your dishes. With a medium hot heat level, these peppers will taste delicious on fresh foods like salads, sandwiches, and more. The Thai Compact peppers also dry very easily, making them a good candidate for chili pepper powder and pepper flakes.

Fun little plant to grow and packs a punch

I tried the Thai compact and the superhot Thai F1 chili this past season and these plants were probably the most rewarding to grow. both strains are big yielding for the size of the plants. Patients is key and once the peppers start turning red its pretty exciting. I love cooking with these types of peppers and will continue to grow at least a few of these plants each year.

Something Magic?

First time growing Thai peppers

This is my first time growing Thai peppers. After years of growing all of Pepper Joe's superhots, I thought I'd try these as hanging baskets and out of curiosity. I planted the Thai Compact, Thai Dragon and Thai Hot. They all did about the same as my other peppers, with about a 95% germination. They've been planted for a little less than 2 months and are doing fine. I have transplanted them into 6 inch pots and have pinched the tops as I do with all my peppers. The pinching slows things up a bit, but in my experience, the plants tend to be much sturdier, healthier looking and I think I get a better harvest. All the different Thais seem to be about the same size. At under 2 months, they are about 4 or 5 inches tall and bushy. They have a very slender, long leaf and a spread as wide as they are tall. I'm hoping these will make good hanging plants, but time will tell. So far I am very satisfied with the whole experience and hope to save some seeds and try again next year. I will hand it to Pepper Joe's for having excellent seeds. This year I am also growing three different varieties of tomatoes, and so far they are doing very well.
Thank you Pepper Joes!
