Start seeds indoors 6 weeks before last spring frost. Sow 1/4 inches deep & 2 inches apart in seed starting mix & keep very 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 inches apart into fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Mulch well & lightly fertilize monthly. Harvest by cutting peppers when 7-8 inches long at either green or red color stage.
