Grow your own veggies! We have fun pepper types for the yummiest fresh meals and summer snacks! Choose from the varieties below:

  • Ancho Poblano Pepper: Heart-shaped peppers are 7-10cm (3-4") long with a mildly pungent and slightly sweet taste. In its fresh form (called "poblano") it is a very dark, glossy green and is used roasted and stuffed for rellenos (remove skin after roasting). When poblano peppers are dried and smoked, they're known as Mulato. When reddish-brown and dried (called ancho) it is used to make chili powder and mole sauce. Ancho pepper seeds produce plants with lots of high quality, dark-green peppers that ripen to red. 1,000 - 2,000 SHU's. As pepper plants go, Ancho can get fairly large, so provide ample root space in containers that are three to five gallons or bigger. Matures in 80 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)

  • Jalapeno Pepper: Jalapeno M Pepper Seeds produce pungent, thick-walled and juicy dark green peppers that are 8cm (3") long and about 2cm(1") wide with a blunt end. On the coast, fruits set well on mid-sized plants 60-90cm (24-36") tall. If there are still green peppers on the plant at the end of the season, pull up the whole plant and hang in a dry spot for it to finish ripening to red. Use green peppers for fresh eating, pickling, and sauces, and dry the red ones. 2,000 - 5,000 SHU's. Jalapeno M works well in three to five gallon containers, and is suitable for patio growing. Dried, smoked jalapenos are known as chipotle. Matures in 70 days. (Open-pollinated seeds)

  • Sweetheart Bell Pepper: Very sweet, heart shaped bell peppers with thick, substantial walls and impressive weight. These peppers are great for stuffing or fresh eating. The flesh is so juicy it drips when it's roasted. Harvest this sweet pimento type bell pepper at the green stage, or wait for the sugars to really develop as it turns red. Sweetheart pepper seeds were a big success at field trials, with the bushy plants producing lots of fruits without any special mulch or heating. The flavour and bulk of the fruits were a hit with local growers. Sweetheart should fill a niche for snacking peppers. Matures in 75 days. (Hybrid seeds)
