How to Grow Pepper X Seeds? 

Pepper X is the superhot Pepper, which has held the place on the list of hottest Peppers in the world with over 3.18 million SHU.

Basically, it is the crossbreed or hybrid of the Carolina Reaper and the Bhut Jolokia (Ghost Pepper).

Though growing Pepper X is challenging, the reward is quite satisfactory to harvest and devor the fierce spicy taste.

Step to Step Instructions to Plant and Grow Pepper X

  • Take a small pot or container and fill it with a seed starting mix. 
  • Now sow the Pepper X seeds 0.25 inch deep in the soil.
  • Sprinkle the water on the soil.
  • Place the Pepper pot in a warm location under the sun. Expect the temperature to be around 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit for germination

If you are starting Pepper X seeds indoors, offer the pot 12 hours of light daily.
  • Optionally, you can also veil the pot or container with plastic wrap to help get the ideal temperature. 
  • Monitor the soil regularly and water it when it feels dry. 
  • Remove the plastic covers once the seeds start germinating, and locate the pot in the sunny spot. 

Pepper X may take longer than expectation, ranging up to 2 weeks for the seeds to sprout, so be patient.

  • Water the seedlings regularly, keeping the soil moist, not soggy. 
  • When the seedlings are grown with 3-4 leaves, you can transplant them to the ground, garden, or larger pot. 
  • Now, 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit will be enough after the seeds have germinated. 
  • Also, remember to feed the newly grown Peppers with balanced fertilizers every two weeks. Peppers are heavy feeders, so fertilize them regularly. 

Your Pepper X will be ready to harvest in 100-120 days when they are ripe in red color.

Who has gulped the whole of Pepper X?

The Creator, Ed Ed Currie, is the only person who has consumed the whole Pepper X as raw. He confessed that the heat of the Pepper remained for three and a half hours and then suffered cramps.
