This is the pungent little dark green pepper found in rings atop nachos and chopped in Mexican sauces. Very popular fresh, canned, or pickled, it livens up any dish.
Weighing in at 1.8-2.6 oz. each, these peppers pack 2100 to 2500 Scovilles of heat! You will love them straight from the vine as well as prepared in a variety of ways. Best of all, the plants are highly resistant to most pepper diseases, especially Potato Virus UY, Tomato Etch Virus, canker stem, and root rot (Phytophthera). You can’t go wrong with a Whopper.
Start seeds indoors or, in climate with short growing seasons, outdoors at least one week after last frost. If starting indoors, allow 7 to 10 weeks for the seeds to mature into seedlings large enough to transplant safely. Fertilize when the blooms appear, and water well. Fruit is most nutritious if allowed to ripen on the plant.
