Kung Pao Pepper Seeds

(4 reviews) Write a Review
Scoville Heat Units (SHU):
8,000 - 14,000

The Kung Pao pepper has an outstanding combination of flavor and spice, and is commonly used in Asian, Thai, and Sichuan cuisine – as it’s an excellent less spicy alternative to Thai and Cayenne peppers. Kung Pao peppers have a medium heat level as they average about 7,000 to 12,000 Scoville Heat Units. The pepper’s flavor is described as earthy and slightly smoky, and its heat level adds a fiery but not overbearing kick. They look very similar to Cayenne peppers and grow to be about four to six inches in length, maturing from green to red. Kung Pao peppers are long, slim, and have very thin walls, making them excellent for drying.

    Kung Pao Peppers

    I tried four plantings from three suppliers and these were the only ones that germinated. I am very careful with my seed starting so I am pretty sure each had equal chances. This one came through

    After shopping around and evaluating different seed companies, I decided to order several different seeds from Tyler Farms and I am so glad that I did. My small package of seeds arrived within a week of when I ordered them and I am on my way towards creating an edible garden.
