Growing Information

Be sure to check out our Pepper Growing Guide to learn how to successfully grow peppers at home.

Peppers are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Peppers do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. Peppers grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting peppers, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Peppers can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

Can't wait for peppers

So far so good. They germinated and have been growing with vigor. I'm sure they will be great producers like our other Hoss peppers. Excited to have red sweet peppers.

The red peppers germinated very good up and slowly growing compared to the orange and yellows that did not germinated well at all but reds very well hope they yield good in my garden
