Description More Information
 
The Anaheim Chile Pepper is a classic, open pollinated pepper variety that matures in 70-90 days. Vigorous bushy upright plants grow 24" to 30" tall and provide good cover. Tapered fruits are 6" to 8" by 1.5" and dark green in color turning red at maturity. This popular, mildly hot pepper is used for canning, drying and fresh market.

SHU of 900 to 3500. Average: 80 days


Detailed planting instructions:

Sow seeds indoors, 1/4 inch deep in flats, peat pots or cellpacks, 8-10 weeks before you anticipate transplanting outside. Seed germinates best when soil temperature is 80 F or higher. It will not germinate below 55 F.

Keep plants indoors in a warm (70 F during the day, 65 F at night), sunny location. Lack of light will produce leggy, unproductive transplants.

Don't be in a rush to transplant outside. Cold temperatures can weaken plants and they may never fully recover. A few days at 60 F to 65 F with reduced water will help harden plants and reduce transplant shock. Over-hardened plants grow slowly after transplanting.

Set plants out 2 to 3 weeks after average last frost when the soil has warmed and the weather has settled. Plant them 12 to 24 inches apart, in rows 24 to 36 inches apart, or spaced about 14 to 16 inches apart in raised beds.

Use black plastic and/or row covers to speed soil warming and early growth. Use caution with row covers not to overheat plants and cause them to drop their blossoms.

If not using black plastic, mulch plants after they are well established and the soil has warmed to retain moisture and control weeds.

Peppers can be temperamental when it comes to setting fruit if temperatures are too hot or too cool. Nighttime temperatures below 60 F or above 75 F can reduce fruit set.

Too much nitrogen fertilizer may promote lush vegetative growth but fewer fruits. Peppers usually responds well to phosphorus fertilizer.

Stake tall varieties for earlier and heavier harvest.

Peppers need even moisture for best performance. An even supply can reduce blossom end rot, a disorder caused by lack of calcium.

Do not plant in same spot more than once every 4 years.


HARVESTING

Make sure the peppers are firm and shiny with a crisp texture. Use garden shears to clip the fruits from the plant instead of pulling them off.

Store peppers at 50 degrees and at least 90 percent humidity, if possible. They should be stored away from other fruits and vegetables because they are sensitive to ethylene gas, which causes them to age faster.

SAVING SEEDS

Cut your favorite variety of pepper in half. All of the seeds inside are most likely viable and you can use them to grow the same variety of pepper in containers or in a sunny garden spot. Collect the seeds and lay them flat on a paper towel for 24 hours.

Label the plastic bag with the permanent marker with the name or variety of the pepper seeds. Place the seeds inside for planting.

Keep the seeds in a cool, but not cold, dark area until you are ready to start them in early spring.

lettuse, all tomatoe, lots of vegetable seeds February 25, 2016
Reviewer: Robin Judkins from Portland, OR United States  
I really enjoy all my seeds that I've been purchasing in the past 8 years. I really appreciate your sight in helping me become self reliant in collecting my own seeds with your how to section on all your seeds you offer.  Very educational, but what I like the most is the fact that they are Heirloom, organic and NON GMO seeds.
I had a terrific garden this last summer, especially with all the tomato seeds I've purchased from you in the past. I'm so happy
with the nutritious vegetables my family eats from my square foot gardens.
Thank you
