Chilli Nadapeno

Chilli Nadapeno is the jalapeño for those that want the flavour without any heat. Your salsas and nachos will have that jalapeño essence but no heat! You also don’t need gloves for picking, chopping, or slicing – this is a sweet pepper posing as a spicy one! Also useful for pickling or stuffing.

Bred by A. P. Whaley Seed Co., these plants produce early, generous yields of juicy, 7-8cm fruits that ripen from green to red. Short plants that are easy to manage.

Sow Start on a heat mat or indoors in August, plant out after risk of frost and soils warmed (early November in cool climate). Can start earlier if planting in a hot house. Lay black plastic on ground and plant into an X cut-out if planting outside. They need consistent warmth in Tasmania. Hothouses are ideal.

  • Soak seeds in lukewarm water for a few days before sowing

Capsicum fruits have been a part of human diets since about 7,500 BC, and are one of the oldest cultivated crops in the Americas, as origins of cultivating chili peppers are traced to east-central Mexico some 6,000 years ago. They were one of the first self-pollinating crops cultivated in Mexico, Central America, and parts of South America.

Germination: Optimal Soil temperature is 24 to 30 C (around 10 to 20 days to germination, longer at lower temps)
