|The cultivar, 'Cochiti' was collected from Cochiti Pueblo where farm land is being lost and some pepper varieties are disappearing. Good hot pepper. Pod size is 1.5 inches long and 1 inch across.
A. annuum is a great container or border plant. Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Sow the seeds in sandy soil and give them warmth. Transplant 12-16 inches apart. Likes a fertilizer treatment once a month. To keep compact, pinch leaves on young plants. Full sun produces best growth and fruiting results.
