180 to 200 days from setting out transplants. Though this pepper is entirely edible, its well-branched little bushy plant is so attractive and heavy-yielding that many folks grow it as an ornamental and let the birds have the tiny, incredibly hot peppers (they don't taste the heat, and abolutely love these little round fruits!). But if you're ambitious, consider putting just a silver or a pinch, if dried, into a dish one night. You will definitely know it's there!

'Tepin' sets 1/4- to 1/2-inch diameter peppers that gradually mature from green to red. If you want to harvest them all, go ahead and pick them green, or the birds may beat you to the lion's share! Many experts believe that this is the original native American wild chile from which all others descend, and given the vigor of this plant, it certainly seems likely. The species is known by many common names, including Bird Pepper, pequin or piquin, and (our favorite!) chile mosquito.

'Tepin' peppers measure between 50,000 and 100,000 on the Scoville heat index, which is essentially off-the-charts hot. (Jalapeno is only about 5,000 Scovilles, by comparison.) The heat is interesting, though -- the first bite is unbelievably spicy for a few minutes, then recedes a bit -- setting it apart from the super-hot peppers such as Habanero.

Compact enough for containers, and an excellent addition to the Rose or vegetable garden (it keeps many pests away from tender plants), 'Tepin' is just too fascinating not to try! Pkt is 25 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.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
