Santaka spicy peppers are a Japanese heirloom variety and the hot flavor is perfect in oriental preparations from stir-fries to soups. Dozens of peppers grow up-right on a stocky plant and turn from green to bright red. Santaka peppers make great chili flakes and we use whole peppers to flavor oil for cooking and marinades.
(Approximately 25 seeds per packet)
Planting Instructions:We recommend starting peppers indoors in a sunny and warm location 4-6 weeks before last frost in spring. Plant outdoors in full sun after danger of frost in spring. Note: pepper seeds need soil temperatures to be at least 70 F to germinate and we use a heating pad under the seedling tray to maintain temperature.
