Hot Korean Gochujang King - Hybrid. Non-GMO. Capsicum annuum. 125-140 days to maturity. Warm season annual. This Korean hybrid pepper has a hot pungency and used for the dried pepper. The peppers are dried and ground to powder, gochugaru, to make gochujang. Peppers are about 6" long. For open field growing.
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. Mature red peppers are dried and made into chili flakes, gochugaru. The powder made from the dried chili is used to make gochujang.
