Pepper- Prik Chi Faa Thai Medium Hot- Asian Vegetable
This is a Thai chili pepper that are considered medium hot. The peppers have smooth glossy green skin that turns red at maturity. They grow about 5 to 7" long and weigh a little less than 1 ounce. Maturity: Approx. 75-80 days
Culture: Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil warm until emergence. Seeds will not germinate in cool soil and planting out too early may affect plant vigor. Harden off plants carefully before transplanting. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Transplant in late spring/summer (soil temperatures at least above 60°F) in a very warm and sunny location. Fertilize as needed. Too much nitrogen will produce lush foliage and few fruits.
