Aconcagua Pepper Seeds are the perfect choice for gardeners seeking to grow exceptionally large, sweet heirloom peppers in their home gardens.

The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) scale is a measure of the pungency or heat level of peppers. Aconcagua peppers have an SHU rating of 0, indicating that they are a sweet pepper variety with no heat. Their mild flavor makes them perfect for those who prefer non-spicy peppers or for adding a touch of sweetness to recipes without overwhelming the taste buds.
Aconcagua pepper plants typically reach a mature height of 24 to 36 inches. They are known to be compact, bushy plants that work well in small gardens or even large containers. This manageable size makes them suitable for both beginner and experienced gardeners alike, as they can easily be pruned and cared for without requiring a significant amount of space.
Day to Maturity
Aconcagua Pepper Seeds have a relatively fast-growing period, with the plants reaching maturity in approximately 70 to 80 days from transplant. This shorter growing period ensures that gardeners can enjoy a satisfying harvest of large, sweet peppers in a relatively short time frame, making them an ideal choice for those looking to grow a quick and productive crop.
A key feature of Aconcagua peppers is their impressive fruit size. These peppers can grow up to 11 inches in length and 2 to 3 inches in diameter, making them one of the largest sweet pepper varieties available. The sizable fruits are perfect for stuffing, slicing, or dicing, offering a generous amount of sweet and flavorful pepper flesh for a wide range of culinary uses.
Aconcagua peppers transition through a beautiful range of colors as they ripen. Initially, the fruits are a vibrant green, which gradually deepens to a rich, red hue when they reach full maturity. The appealing color transition not only adds visual interest to the garden but also allows gardeners to choose when to harvest their peppers, depending on their desired level of sweetness and color.
