Start seeds indoors 6 weeks before last spring frost. Sow 1/4″ deep and 2″ apart in seed starting mix and keep warm 27C. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, transplant into individual containers. When night temps stay above 10C acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions before transplanting 18-24″ apart into fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Mulch and fertilize monthly. Full-sized peppers can be picked green, but are much sweeter and nutritious if left to mature to orange.
