Santa Fe Grande pepper seeds! A fantastic southwestern recipe pepper!
A pretty chile, Santa Fe Grande pepper (also known as Guero) matures from yellow to orange-red with mild heat and slight sweetness.
It works well either cooked or fresh for salads, salsas, and other dishes based on chile peppers. Plants grow about 2 feet tall and are resistant to tobacco mosaic virus. Ripens from green, to yellow, then red. A very mild (less than 1,000 scovilles) cooking and salad pepper. Great in tacos and Tex/Mex food.
For hardiness zones 7 and below, start seeds inside about eight weeks before the last frost date in your area. Wait until two weeks after the last frost before you plant the peppers outside. Plant seeds 1/4" deep and keep the soil moist, in a well-draining soil, throughout germination. You may plant the seeds directly in the garden if you live in a region that has a long growing season. The plants do not like temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Colder temperatures can reduce the yield of the plant.
