Dragon's Toe Pepper Plant - Sweet Mild Heat - 2.5" Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
These convoluted shaped, wrinkly peppers are uncommon, originating in Southeast Asia. The fruit is sweet with a little kick but less than the heat of a jalapeno. Use green in stir-fries and salads, we have some going into a hot sauce too. Tall upright plants yield a couple of dozen 3-4” by 2” thin-walled, peppers. Super fun to grow! F1 Hybrid
Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.
Tips: Pinch-off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with compost if needed. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.
