Growing Instructions:

  1. Planting Time:
    • Indoor Sowing: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date.
    • Outdoor Transplanting: Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost when soil temperatures are consistently above 60°F (15°C).
  2. Soil and Location:
    • Soil: Prefers well-draining, fertile soil with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8. Enrich the soil with compost or well-rotted manure.
    • Location: Choose a sunny spot that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.
  3. Sowing Depth and Spacing:
    • Sowing Depth: Plant seeds about 1/4 inch (6 mm) deep.
    • Spacing: Space plants 18-24 inches (45-60 cm) apart in rows spaced 24-36 inches (60-90 cm) apart to allow for adequate air circulation and growth.
  4. Germination and Seedling Care:
    • Temperature: Maintain soil temperatures between 75-85°F (24-29°C) for optimal germination, which usually occurs in 7-14 days.
    • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water seedlings regularly and ensure good drainage to prevent root rot.
  5. Transplanting and Growth:
    • Hardening Off: Gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions by placing them outside for a few hours each day, increasing exposure over a week.
    • Planting: Transplant seedlings to the garden at the same depth they were in their pots. Use stakes or cages to support growth and keep fruits off the ground.
  6. Care and Maintenance:
    • Watering: Water deeply and consistently, especially during dry spells. Avoid overhead watering to reduce the risk of fungal diseases.
    • Fertilization: Feed plants with a balanced fertilizer every 3-4 weeks or use a slow-release fertilizer at planting time.
    • Pruning: Remove any damaged or diseased foliage to promote better airflow and prevent disease spread.



  • Harvest peppers when they are fully red and firm. Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut the peppers from the plant, leaving a small portion of the stem attached to avoid damaging the plant.
  • For a continuous harvest, pick peppers regularly as they mature.
