Chile Manzano , also known as Rocoto, is a variety of hot pepper that is distinguished by its unique characteristics.

Historical background:

The Chile Manzano is native to South America, especially the Andean regions of Peru and Bolivia. It has a long history of cultivation and consumption in these regions.

Planting time to harvest:
• The time needed to grow Chile Manzano varies depending on weather conditions and growing method, but generally ranges from 90 to 120 days from planting to harvest.

• Chile Manzano thrives in well-drained soils rich in organic matter. It prefers a slightly acidic to neutral pH, around 6.0 to 7.0.

Climate and temperature:
• This variety of chili prefers warm climates. The optimal temperature for its growth is between 20°C and 30°C. It does not tolerate frost and can be damaged by temperatures below 10°C.

Recommended planting method
• It is recommended to sow Chile Manzano seeds in seedbeds around 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date. The seedlings can then be transplanted into the ground once conditions are suitable.

Planting depth:
• Chile Manzano seeds should be planted at a depth of approximately 1 cm in the seedbed or soil.

• Chile Manzano seeds usually germinate in 10-20 days, depending on temperature and humidity conditions.

• The cultivation of Chile Manzano requires similar care to other peppers. Regular watering and good drainage should be provided. In addition, it is important to control pests and diseases that may affect the plant.

• Irrigation must be constant but avoiding flooding. The soil should be kept moist, but not soggy.

• Manzano chiles are ready to harvest when they reach full size and have a bright color. They can be harvested individually or cut entire branches from the plant.

Chile Manzano is known for its intense spiciness. Your Scoville Scale score can vary widely, but generally ranges between 12,000 and 30,000 Scoville Units (US).
