Thai chili peppers are a great all around pepper. The plants produce an early abundance of peppers that are quite versatile in the kitchen. Their compact size makes them fit just about anywhere in the garden, but are perfect for growing in pots too. The pods are fairly hot (roughly the same as a cayenne), and there's a nice sweetness to them too. These plants are extremely productive, and quite ornamental too.


The plant grows to be about 2 feet tall, and equally wide. Under ideal growing conditions, these plants can yield over a hundred pods in their first season. These Thai peppers are typically one of the first varieties to ripen. The pods taste excellent fresh, but also when dried and ground into a powder. They make a delicious addition to fermented sauces or pickle recipes too.


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.
