Biquinho Yellow Pepper Seeds - Capsicum Chinense - Delicious & Prolific

Biquinho Yellow Pepper Seeds - Capsicum Chinense - Delicious & Prolific

Quantity: 10 Seeds

Species: Capsicum Chinense

Scovilles: 500 - 1000


Biquinho Yellow peppers, aka Little Beak, are a such a delicious capsicum variety. The plants can grow to be about 4 feet tall, and equally wide, and can yield yield hundreds of pods with minimal effort. The fruits taste amazing fresh; they're sweet, aromatic, refreshing, and full of flavour. Coming in at between 500 - 1000 scovilles, Biquinho peppers are not very hot, if at all, so this variety makes for a great choice to those who want to enjoy flavourful peppers of the Chinense species without the intense burning heat. They make a great tasting sauce, are often pickled, and can be dried and ground into a delicious powder too. This is one of the few Chinese varieties that grow well in climates that don't have the longest or hottest growing season. 


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    It's best to start pepper seeds as early in the season as possible; we start them here on the farm in January. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 2-8 weeks to germinate, but they can sometimes take less time too. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. These peppers grow very well in pots or containers; I recommend 5 gallon pots of larger. Peppers do best when grown in full sun.
