Sad to say none of the tree pepper seed I ordered came up do you sell the plants I will order plants if you have some I know it is late but if I can get a plant I will have seed for next year
I had a 50% germination rate on these, and it took 8 days before the first seed germinated at 85F. Word of advice, this plant needs time to grow. It wants to grow tall and doesn't want to give peppers until its tall, so start it early inside to give it a head start. This year it grew to be 65 inches tall from soil to canopy top but could have grown larger if a larger pot was used. The one plant yielded a pepper mass of 414 grams over the growing season but it could have been more (hence why i recommend starting early). The cayennes have a nice flavor and are about 3 inches in length. The one thing that really surprised me was the cold resistance of this plant! I live on the border of hardiness zone 8/9 and, while all my other plants have died, this plant still has green leaves with ZERO winter care. Pretty good considering there's been many 20F nights.
Pictures look great. Really wish they would've grown, but not a single one did.
Never had such poor results, my usual trusted method produced only four feeble starts, and one of them died after only a few days.
I emailed Pepper Joe's to see if a different approach for this particular seed was suggested, and all I got back was an impertinent form letter with no useful information whatsoever.
Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85* and can take up to 6 weeks to germinate. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!
Loved this pepper. Bought this from Pepper Joe's years ago and was excited to find it again. Imagine my disappointment when not one of the seeds germinated.
