In early spring, start indoors about 2 months before outdoor night temps are reliably in the 50-55°F (10-13°C) range. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm, 80-85°F (27-29°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside.
When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant 2 inches apart into deeper containers or individual pots. Maintain at 70-75°F (21-24°C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Plant out 2 1/2 feet apart into rich soil in full sun.
Don’t plant peppers outdoors until night temperatures are above 55°F (13°C). Prepare soil with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots. Mulch plants to maintain even soil moisture. Stake or cage your plants to help support their heavy fruit set.
