Chiltepin Peppers are a unique variety of hot pepper native to the American Southwest. These peppers are small and round, with a distinctive smoky flavor that makes them a popular choice for adding heat to dishes. The Latin name for Chiltepin peppers is Capsicum annuum var. glabriusculum, and they are renowned for their intense spiciness.

These peppers can be grown from seed, and they offer an exciting challenge to gardeners looking to grow something unique. Here's what you need to know about growing Chiltepin peppers from seed:

• Plant the seeds in well-draining soil at a depth of 1/4 inch and keep them moist until germination.

• Once the seedlings appear, thin them out to 8-12 inches apart and keep them in full sun.

• Allow the soil to dry between waterings, as too much moisture can cause root rot.

• Fertilize the plants every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer.

• To encourage more fruit production, pinch off the top of the plant when it reaches 12 inches in height.

• Harvest the peppers when they turn red or orange, typically 70-80 days after planting.

Chiltepin peppers are a great addition to any garden, and they offer plenty of culinary possibilities. Use them fresh in salsas and sauces, or dry them for use in spice blends and rubs. With their intense heat and smoky flavor, these peppers make anything they touch come alive!
