Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors until soil is warm.



Pepper varieties come from tropical humid regions. The temperature, moisture, and air circulation all play a role in growing plants from seeds. Too little heat, too much moisture, and lack of air circulation will cause poor results. Do not use jiffy peat pots, plugs, or potting soil as the soil becomes too dry or too wet, which can lead to disease and fungus. We have experienced disease and low germination when using these types of products. Use Organic Seed Starting Material for best germination results.



Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.



Growing Peppers:



Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil. Almost all peppers have the same requirements for successful growth.  Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil – and make sure they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week.  In many ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.



At Planting Time:



We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth.  We also mulch around each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2″ thick layer of compost.







Growing Hot Peppers in Containers
Peppers can be grown all year long in containers. It is suitable for apartment dwellers and gardeners who live in cool regions where the number of growing days are limited. Many pepper enthusiast grow peppers in pots so they can have fresh peppers all year long. It’s best to use 5 gallon containers so the roots do not get too over-crowded
Soil Requirements:
Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.
Water Requirements:
Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.
Fertilizer Requirements:
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
Harvest Tips:
Harvest hot peppers when they are fully mature using a garden scissor so you don't damage the plant. Pick peppers as they mature to encourage new buds to form.



Panamanian Style Pepper Sauce
makes around 1 1/2 cups

9 scotch bonnet peppers
5 jalapenos
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons dijon or brown mustard
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Juice of half of a lemon or lime
pinch of sugar

 habaneros / scotch bonnets / aji chombo are the hottest peppers in the world! Please use gloves when cutting them...you really don't want to get the oils on your hands or in sensitive areas like your eyes***

Coarsely chop the peppers, onions and garlic and add to your blender or food processor. Pulse the mixture until finely chopped, then add the mustard. Process until smooth.

Pour in the lemon juice, vinegar, and salt and process once again.
Lastly, sprinkle in a pinch of sugar and blend once more.

Transfer the sauce into a clean glass jar (at least 1- pint capacity).

The pepper sauce will be a little chunky, but if you'd like a slightly milder & smoother sauce, take a moment to cut out the ribs and seeds of the peppers before blending.

Store in the refrigerator and use as needed. For a marinade or a large pot of soup or stew, start with one teaspoon to perk up the dish. Experiment and see how much heat works for you. :o)
