Orange Manzano Rocoto Pepper Seeds

(8 reviews) Write a Review
Scoville Heat Units (SHU):
12,000 -- 30,000

The Orange Manzano pepper has a medium heat level and a delicious fruity flavor. The Orange Manzano pepper has an apple-like shape with thick walls. The pepper’s thick walls make the Manzano seem similar to a smaller version of the Orange Bell pepper, but Manzano peppers are more flavorful and spicier. Popular in salsa and hot sauce, the Manzano pepper has a refreshing citrus flavor and a mild to medium heat level.

Like the Irish Shrub pepper, the Manzano is one of the few peppers that can thrive in a cool environment. Native to the Andes, the Manzano pepper averages between 12,000 to 30,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), which makes it about twice as hot as the Jalapeño pepper.  Serrano peppers and Chile de Arbol peppers have a similar heat level to the Manzano pepper.

    Good, but slow to germinate

    My seeds are slowly making progress. I planted them several weeks ago and they have sprouted. Thank you so much.

    The seeds took a bit to germinate but I am a big fan of your seeds. I grew some last year and all of the pods turned out beautiful. Thank you so much.

    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.

    All sprouted

    These seeds take longer than most to germinate, but all of mine were able to eventually sprout. I was initially bummed because I thought they weren't going to grow, but I didn't realize they just take a while. Good seeds!

    I received the seats within a few days of when I placed the order. I’ve already planted the seeds and they are sprouting. I couldn’t ask for anymore!
