MORE ABOUT ROOSTER SPUR PEPPERS:
(Capsicum annuum) Healthy plants blanketed with tons of 1-2" red and green peppers that resemble little Christmas lights. So pretty, they could pass as an ornamental, but they offer more than beauty. Crisp with just enough heat for the average chile fan--Rooster Spur peppers have become one of our favorites for pickling whole. I just make a small cut in the side to allow the brine to penetrate, then drop them in whole, stem and all (you'll appreciate having a handle when you eat them.) Very hot. 95 days to harvest. 25 seeds/pkt.
GROWING PEPPERS FROM SEED
I had 100% germination with these seeds. Seedlings are looking healthy. I use Rooster Spur peppers to make pepper jelly.
I planted 16 seeds and got 16 sprouts. They are only about an inch tall right now but they are so pretty. The leaves are a very deep green and they kind of remind me of devil's horns. Maybe an indication of the heat to come.
Few people in my area have heard of Rooster Spur peppers, so I enjoyed sharing the bounty from last season's harvest. I'm growing them this year to sell at my local farmers market (plants and peppers). If you're looking for beautiful peppers with a lot of heat, these are the ones to get.
