Trapio Serrano Pepper is a hybrid serrano pepper variety that produces abundant yields of extra large peppers. These peppers average 5-6" long and are almost most twice as large as standard serrano varieties. They have a moderate heat that is great for slicing into rings for eating raw or cooking.
Trapio Serrano Pepper has vigorous plants that are adapted to a wide range of growing conditions and growing zones. The plants recover well after harvesting and will continually produce throughout the warm growing season. The plants also have an intermediate resistance to bacterial leaf spot.
Peppers are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Peppers do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seeds. Peppers grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.
If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting peppers, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Peppers can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
