Suggested Planting Requirements: Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Do not overwater as this encourages diseases.

Growing Recommendations: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Direct sowing is not recommended but can be accomplished. Mulch for disease and weed control. Pinch all flowers until the main stalk reaches 18” for optimum support. In cooler areas, you may grow peppers in greenhouses or under cloches. Temperatures under 55°F may permanently damage peppers. Peppers can be grown in container gardens. Stake to keep fruit off the ground.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut; do not pull the fruit from the stems.   Harvest when fully red. You can roast peppers for Turkish style dips, toss them in salsas, and/or dry them.
