The Skinny Green chili, scientifically known as Capsicum annuum ‘Skinny Green’, is believed to have originated in South America, particularly in regions where Capsicum annuum varieties are traditionally grown. It is characterized by its elongated shape, typically measuring around 10-15 cm in length and about 1-2 cm in width. The peppers are bright green when immature and gradually turn red as they mature, although they are often harvested and consumed in their green stage.

To grow Skinny Green chili from seed, begin by sowing seeds indoors around early spring (September to October). Use a well-draining seed-raising mix and plant the seeds about 5 mm deep. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged to facilitate germination, which usually occurs within 1-2 weeks under optimal conditions.

Once the seedlings have developed their first true leaves, they can be transplanted into larger pots or directly into a prepared garden bed. Choose a sunny location that receives at least 6-8 hours of sunlight daily. Ensure the soil is fertile, well-draining, and enriched with organic matter.

Maintain consistent moisture levels throughout the growing season by watering regularly, particularly during dry periods. Avoid water logging the soil, as it can lead to root rot.

Fertilize the plants every 4-6 weeks with a balanced organic fertilizer, following the recommended dosage on the product label. Mulching around the base of the plants can help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and maintain soil temperature.

As the Skinny Green chilies mature, they will develop their characteristic bright green color. Harvest them when they reach the desired size and color, using scissors or pruning shears to cut them from the plant to avoid damaging the stems.
