Red Squash Pepper was developed by US Vegetable Laboratory for resistance to root-knot nematode. Spicy hot taste with a hint of citrus about the same heat as a mild habanero but not quite as searing, yet still having that sneaky delayed heat development. The Red Squash is easier to grow pepper than the Habaneros and is a quicker more dependable producer. The pods have a nice fruity flavor. Fruit develops from 1 to 1.5 inches long by 1.5 to 2 inches wide with medium thick flesh. Pod matures from green to red. Heat level hot.
Red Squash peppers are relatively easy to grow, as long as they receive plenty of moisture and nutrients, not subjected to cold and receive plenty of sunshine. Seeds should be started indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost. When the temperature reaches 70 F, transplant 16 to 18 inches apart, in rows 3 feet apart. Fertilize when they are 14 inches tall.
