EXCLUSIVE - We import these brilliantly colored, authentic Thai chiles direct from the source! Vigorous Full Moon ripens bright orange with delicious medium hot/sweet pungency, perfect minced in sauces and salads. Red Vesuvius’ fiery little fruits point up like flames, with that nutty, incendiary pungency just right for stir-fries. Use fresh or air dry for tantalizing Asians style dishes.
Seeds are color-coded with food grade stain to distinguish varieties; be sure to plant some of each.

Red seed = Red Vesuvius
Undyed seed = Orange Full Moon

STARTING SEEDLINGS

In early spring, start indoors about 2 months before night temperatures stay reliably 50-55°F (10- 13°C). Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm 80-85°F (27-30°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant into deeper individual containers. Maintain at 70-75°F (21-24°C). Feed with half strength fertilizer every week until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant 2 feet apart into rich soil in full sun.


GROWING NOTES

Chiles need warm conditions. Don’t transplant outdoors until night temperatures stay securely above 55°F (13°C). Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots. Mulch plants to maintain even soil moisture. Keep well weeded, watered and fertilized.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Harvest when chiles have a high gloss and are fully ripened to orange for the medium-hot Full Moon and red for Vesuvius. To dry for year-round use, cut whole branches of chiles or harvest individually and string from the stem end. Hang in a warm, airy location. Use in all Thai and Asian stir-fries, sauces, salsas and marinades or dry and chop for spicy chile flakes to sprinkle on pizza.
