Culinary Uses:
Santa Fe Grande Hot Peppers are prized for their moderate heat level and distinctively fruity flavor. They are versatile in the kitchen, adding a spicy kick to a wide range of dishes. Whether sliced and added to sandwiches and salads, pickled for a tangy treat, or incorporated into salsa for a flavorful dip, these peppers offer a delightful balance of heat and flavor. They are also commonly used to infuse oils, vinegars, and sauces with their unique spice, enhancing the complexity of various culinary creations.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Santa Fe Grande Hot Peppers thrive in warm climates and require full sun and well-drained soil to flourish. Start seeds indoors approximately 8-10 weeks before the last expected frost date, then transplant seedlings outdoors once the soil has warmed and all danger of frost has passed. Space plants 12-18 inches apart to allow for adequate air circulation and room for growth. These peppers have a compact bush growth habit, making them suitable for container gardening as well as traditional garden beds. Provide regular watering and fertilization to promote healthy growth and prolific fruit production throughout the growing season.
