Hot Rod is a great, spicy Serrano type pepper. These guys do a great job of fruiting over really long season, with tons of 3 inch long peppers. They do tend to get a big larger than other hot peppers so it may be worthwhile spending some time trellising them.

Hot Pepper: As group of veggies with tons and tons of variety, there is a pepper for everyone out there. Hot pepper’s heat come from a chemical they produce called capsaicin. Even when they turn out to be too spicy to eat, I love to use the peppers to make a hot oil that can deter pests like squirrels.

Growing Tips: Hot peppers love sun and heat! They do great all summer long in a greenhouse as well as in the garden. Give peppers plenty of fertility and at least 12 inches between plants.
