Chili Pepper Growing Guide

Crop Rotation Group

Solanaceae (Potato and tomato family) 

Soil

Well drained soil that holds moisture well. We recommend MahaGro Potting Mix

Position

Full sun.

Extreme Cold tolerant

No.

Feeding

Mix an organic fertilizer into the planting holes as you transplant peppers. Feed every two weeks with the same organic fertilizer after the plants begin to blossom and set fruit.

Companions

Carrot, Onion, Onions, Leek and Tomato.

Spacing

Single Plants: 1' 1" (35cm) each way (minimum)
Rows: 11" (30cm) with 1' 3" (40cm) row gap (minimum)

Sow and Plant

Start indoors, and set out seedlings when the potting mix is settled and warm. Keep soil lightly moist at all times.

Notes

Tie heavy-bearing plants to a single stake to keep them from falling over. Ornamental varieties with variegated foliage and colorful fruits are easy to grow in containers.

Harvesting

Chili peppers can be harvested when they are immature, but pungency increases with ripeness. Wear protective gloves when handling hot chilis, which can be dried or frozen for future use.

Troubleshooting

Hot weather increases hot compounds in chilis, so those grown in cool climates may lack heat. Some chilis do not bear heavily until days become shorter in late summer.
