How to Grow Hot Peppers – Part 1

At Bring The Wing, we like to cover all things wing related. And when it comes down to it, the sauce is what really makes a great wing stand out from the crowd. At the heart of each sauce is the pepper used to create it, so we have decided to conduct a series of videos demonstrating how to grow your own hot peppers which can be used to make your own hot sauce.

Join Farmer Pappy as he shows you how to grow your own hot peppers from start to finish in “Pappy’s Hot Pepper Planting Symposium – Part 1.” If you have any questions for Farmer Pappy, please leave a comment below as he will make it a point to answer each and every one.

    Is there anything you can do while the peppers are growing to make the end result a hotter pepper than usual?

    • Farmer Pappy says:

      Aside from genetic modification and a PhD. in chemistry, I can think of no sure fire method to increase the scoville units of any given pepper during the course of the growing season. However, selective seeding will insure that the peppers you grow will be as hot as they possibly can be. It is not uncommon for different peppers from the same plant to be hotter than others. Of course, this requires a courageous taste tester or a glutton for punishment to make that assessment. After making your determination, the seeds of the hottest peppers should be collected and dried for planting next spring. This, in my estimation, is the most reliable method of proliferating the heat of your strain.
