Planting & Care
Soil & Water: Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8 and an abundant level of phosphorus and calcium. Water deeply, but don't over water.
Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Transplant to the garden when the soil is warm and all chances of frost has passed. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for weed control and moisture retention.
Harvesting & Storage: Cut (don't pull) the peppers when they are about 4-6" long and refrigerate. Frequent picking will encourage continued production through the season.
