Hot Peppers - Kung Pao

The Hot Pepper Kung Pao, 'Capsicum annuum', has long, skinny red peppers that are similar in appearance to the cayenne.


The Kung Pao Pepper is a fairly recently introduced hybrid with excellent mildly hot flavor and is often used in Thai and other Southeast Asian cuisines.


The fruits are very long, to 6-9", and dark red in color, with thin walls. Kung Pao peppers plants are fast-growing and vigorous. The high yielding plant bears many fast drying peppers with a very hot yet inviting flavor.


Transplant outside in the spring 3 to 4 weeks after last frost date.


Note: To get a jump on the season transplant outside, use a walls-of-water or some black plastic to maintain and increase temperatures.


Plant in average garden soil with sufficient organic matter.


Peppers use quite a bit of water but prefer to be watered deeply and not too often.


Harvest when peppers begin to turn green to red. Use gloves and do not touch any other part of the body after harvesting. Wash your hands immediately.

These peppers are excellent because they a good flavor and not just the heat. They are great on pizza for their flavor as in many dishes.
