We show that there is a residual subset $\S (M)$ of Diff$^1$ (M) such that, for every $f\in \S(M)$, any homoclinic class of $f$ containing periodic saddles $p$ and $q$ of indices $\alpha$ and $\beta$ respectively, where $\alpha< \beta$, has superexponential growth of the number of periodic points inside the homoclinic class. Furthermore, it is shown that the super-exponential growth occurs for hyperbolic periodic points of index $\gamma$ inside the homoclinic class for every $\gamma\in[\alpha,\beta]$.
