The Wa Mae Wo Hot Korean peppers look very similar to Thai peppers, but these slender pods are bred for their strong pungent flavors and high productivity.

These are early maturing plants that grow around 3-4 ft. tall and have great yields of these pendant-shaped pods when planted into the ground. Wa Mae Wo peppers start off green and mature to red with nice, smooth skin. Harvest these at green or red for variation in heat and flavor.

Taking a bite out of this pepper is like taking a bite out of an apple: crunchy, yet fruity and sweet. The heat is decently hot, and there is a little bit of a salty flavor to the Wa Mae Wo as well, making them ideal for cooking, roasting, or even chopping up and using them in fresh foods. They can also be used dried as a pepper, ground into flakes, and made into fermented pickles.

  • 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.
