85 days from setting out transplants.

Pepper lovers, rejoice! Here's a hot wax (banana) pepper that has it all, from early maturity to very generous yields to extra-thick walls to super-disease-resistant growth in parts of the country not typically known for their pepper production! Hot Sunset lives up to its name with a rainbow of colors on long, red, yummy fruit you'll harvest all summer long!

Hot Sunset won a regional All-America Selection award in 2015, with the southeast, the heartland, and the Great Lakes regions specifically called out as great places to grow this pepper. Does this mean that it won't fare well elsewhere? Not at all! We expect peppers to do well in hot, dry climates, as well as in the northwest. Hot Sunset just adds new areas to the "trouble free" zones, thanks to great resistance to leafspot (xanthomonas campestris) and tomato spotted wilt virus. Anyone who has ever had problems growing peppers should take a close look at Hot Sunset!

And then there are the yields. You can expect 15 to 20 peppers from every plant! Hot Sunset produces fruit over a long season, so if you're a fresh-pepper lover, you don't have to worry about harvesting everything at once and then freezing or canning it. This rugged garden presence just keeps going all summer, so your homemade pizzas, salads, and appetizers can always be dotted with freshly-picked rings of mild-flavored, crunchy-sweet peppers!

This fruit reaches about 7¼ inches long, ring to a point from 1-inch-diameter shoulders. It's good for canning because the size tends to be quite uniform. And the best part is that although the fruit is ripe and ready to pick when it turns from pale green to buttery yellow, if you leave it on the plant a few days longer, it will pass through stages of orange and finally mature to rich red. Many peppers crack or split before attaining their peak of scarlet ripeness, but not Hot Sunset! It doesn't have its name for nothing!

Now, although it's called "Hot" Sunset, this banana pepper clocks in at a mild 650 Scovilles of heat. Enough for you to know it's there and enjoy a spicy bite, not enough for children to turn up their noses or those with spice-intolerant palates to worry. The whole family will enjoy this pepper! Give it a try this season -- it's just an all-around superior choice.

Start the seeds indoors about 7 to 10 weeks before the last scheduled spring frost in your area. Peppers like warm soil and frost-free nights, so wait to transplant the seedlings until they have at least 2 sets of true leaves and spring is well underway. Fertilize when the flowers begin to appear, and keep the moisture level even throughout the growing season if possible. Offer some support to this vining plant, to hold up all those big peppers! Easy to grow. Pkt is 15 seeds.

Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.
