This Hot Pepper - F1 Apache seeds are very fast growing. Put the seeds in a zippered plastic bag and place them in a Scoville heat unit. Place the seeds between damp sheets of paper towel to speed up the process. As soon as the pepper seeds sprout, carefully plant them in individual containers such as pea pots. Cover the seedlings with a fine dusting of compost after seeding them into a free-draining compost. In a propagator, place seeds at 25-30 degrees Celsius until they germinate, which takes 10 to 15 days.


Apache Pepper is an extremely popular, reliable, and non-spreading type of hot pepper. It grows to a height of 35-45 cm. In abundance, small conical-shaped fruits mature from light green to a glossy red color maturing from 70,000 - 80,000 Scovilles. Apaches are very useful in the kitchen as an everyday type of chili with a medium heat level. If you don't want to use them fresh, you can freeze them and use them later, frozen or dried and ground into chili powder/flakes. 


Plant hot pepper seedlings into three pots when they are large enough to handle. When the `vegetable plants are 4 inches high and 18 inches apart, plant them. Prepare outdoor crops by acclimatizing them to the outdoors by planting them in sunny, fertile, moist, well-drained soil, since, after all, frost is a concern.
