The flowers are blooming, more outdoor events are popping up and I'm here for it! I love this time year when the crocuses, daffodils and tulips bloom and we get more daylight. It's a time to start planting your peppers if you plan to grow from seeds. Here in the Northeast I start growing indoors for future planting and can't wait to start seeing a few sprouts.
If you don't know, most spicy chile peppers take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to germinate and 90-120 days to produce peppers. It's a long time to wait but it's so worth it! I've planted habaneros peppers and ghost pepper plants that have produced dozens of peppers. Since a little heat from super hots go a long way, you can always slice the peppers and freeze them for future use. I still have peppers in the freezer from last years' harvest which I plan to use for my spicy lollipops! I'm also getting new seeds for an awesome surprise for you all!
I don't like spoiling surprises but little sneak peeks are OK no? So happy to say that my April Hot Stuff box will include pepper seeds from the Chile Pepper Institute in New Mexico!! The institute is the only non-profit organization devoted to educated, research on chile peppers! The institute is on the New Mexico State University campus in Las Cruces. They also have books, art and a huge catalog of hard to find seeds. PS: Above photo isn't the actual pepper seeds you will get in your April Spring Fling box but you will get two varities! YAY!!
