Growing Peppers 101

Since I really really want big beautiful peppers this fall (so that I can make this recipe), here is what I've been learning about growing peppers successfully...

  • like sun
  • need good drainage soil
  • need deep and frequent irrigation
  • should be spaced 18 inches apart from each other
  • that flower during hot temperatures are more likely to abort fruit
  • can be placed under hotcap or plastic tunnel to protect from cool weather

For more information, check out my source:
USU Extension fact sheet "Peppers in the Garden"
