Seed Starting 101: Planting Pepper Seed

Are you planting pepper seed this year? I am behind, but better late than never! It’s not too late, if you haven’t planted yours yet! I don’t really like hot peppers, so I don’t do a lot of them. But if you like hot peppers, they can be planted as early as December. Usually February is when I get my sweet peppers planted, and I was busy last weekend planting pepper seed, so I got it done just in time!

My Favorite Pepper Varieties: Hot Peppers Usually I only do a few hot peppers, and the milder one’s at that, like Anaheim Chili’s and Jalapenos. These are what I will be growing this year: Jalapenos: Spicy little peppers perfect for a little heat in your salsa or any dishes you like a little heat. We also like to make Cowboy Candy with them, which is a pickled jalapeno in a sweet sauce. So good! Anaheim Chili’s: These are mildly hot, I don’t even think they are hot if picked when green, but let them turn red on the vine, and they are much hotter! I like these in all types of Mexican dishes. Black Hungarian: I grew some of these for a customer who bought starts from me last year, and they are a new favorite! These are also mildly hot and are black in color. Mini Sweet Peppers Bangles Mix: These are great little peppers perfect for the lunch box or for snacking and come in red…
