50,000-100,000 Scoville Heat Units (very hot).
When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost when air temperature is at least 70° F and soil temperature is at least 65° F.
When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 8 to 10 weeks before average last frost. In USDA zones 9 & 10, can also sow in midsummer for fall crop.
Harvesting: Harvest when peppers have turned from green to red. When harvesting, take care to avoid touching the interior of any broken peppers, as the capsaicin is an extreme irritant, especially to the eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after harvesting, or wear gloves to harvest peppers.
Green Thumb Tip
Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Peppers germinate best in
warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to
transplant outdoors until soil is warm.
Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil
Almost all peppers have the same requirements for
successful growth. Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil – and
make sure they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week. In
many ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.
At Planting Time:
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of
compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea
every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around
each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2″ thick layer of compost.
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating.
They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper
towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a
normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also,
remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or
something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often
works too since it is normally warmer up there.
Peppers do very well grown in pots.
