Offered in 1935 by Joseph Harris & Co. of Coldwater, NY, who reported, “If you want a large hot pepper, try the new Hot Portugal. The best hot pepper we know.” Sturdy upright plants produce very heavy yields early in the growing season. Glossy vivid red elongated fruits grow 6" or longer.
Growing Instructions

Start seeds indoors at ¼“  depth 8 weeks before the last frost. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Transplant outdoors once danger of frost has passed and soil is warm, in rows 12-24” apart in full sun.
