Thor’s Thunderbolt

This pepper is a beautiful pepper with dark foliage.  The jagged bumpy fruit grows in an irregular shape that can look like a lightning bolt.  Fruit have a fascinating color journey –  from dark purple, to a pinkish, to a cream.  Similar to the ghost pepper  in shape, smell, and taste – though it is more mild.

A strong growing plant, Thor’s Thunderbolt is a fan favorite.  When showing off funky peppers to visitors, this is our go-to cultivar!  It is a great example of variations within the capsicum genus.

Thor’s Thunderbolt has an estimated 400-600K SHU heat rating.

Growing Thor’s Thunderbolt pepper seeds

Here are the general steps for germinating pepper seeds:

  1. Choose a good quality potting soil that is light, well-draining, and nutrient-rich.
  2. Fill a small container with the potting soil and moisten it with water.
  3. Place the pepper seeds on top of the soil, leaving about 1 inch (2.5 cm) of space between each seed.
  4. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil, about 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) deep.
  5. Cover the container with plastic wrap or a clear plastic dome to create a mini greenhouse environment that will help to retain moisture and heat.
  6. Place the container in a warm and bright location, such as on a sunny windowsill or under a grow light.
  7. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, watering when the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry to the touch.
  8. Once the seeds have germinated and sprouted, remove the plastic wrap or dome and continue to keep the soil moist and the seedlings in a bright location.
  9. After the seedlings have developed a few sets of true leaves, you can transplant them into larger containers or outdoors into the garden, depending on the weather and growing conditions.
