Quantity: 10 Seeds

Species: Capsicum Baccatum

Yellow Bouquet, aka CGN 22181 is a great tasting variety of pepper from the Peruvian wild. Unlike many baccatums, this plant doesn't grow very large; it gets to be 3 feet tall, by 2 feet wide. The plant is quite prolific though, and in one season can produce over 100 beautiful yellow pendulum shaped peppers that often blush purple. The pods taste very delicious; they're sweet and fruity, with a hint of citrus, much like the Lemon Drop pepper. The heat isn't overly intense, so it's easy to detect the more subtle yet complex flavours. These peppers go very well with fish and poultry dishes. As well as being a great choice for fresh eating, these pods dry up to make an amazing powder too.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    Like all capsicums, it’s best to start Yellow Bouquet 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 greatly aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 2-4 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. Peppers do best when grown in full sun.
