Cultivation: Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil warm until emergence (75-80ºF minimum). Seeds will not germinate in cool soil and planting out too early may affect plant vigor. Harden off plants carefully before transplanting. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Transplant in late spring/early summer in a very warm and sunny location (soil temperatures at least above 60ºF). Fertilize as needed. Too much nitrogen will produce lush foliage and few fruits. Harvest the green fruits directly from the plant. To dry red ripe peppers, cut branches, remove leaves and hang until fruit is dry.
