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 over water as this encourages diseases.
Growing Recommendations: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Direct sowing is not recommended but can be accomplished. Peppers can be tricky to germinate if soil temperatures are too low. Gardeners and farmers can use a heating mat to speed up germination and get more even germination. On our farm, we start our peppers in the warmth of the greenhouse and get great results.
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 are great choices for container gardens. Stake to keep fruit off the ground.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut the fruit from the stems; do not pull. Harvest when fully red.
