The wee little peppers in this blend are such a blast of fun to grow either in the garden or on the patio. Peppers are tiny, some only being an inch long and wide. Compact plants grow to 15” in height. Absolutely cute and robustly sweet tasting added to salads, vegetable platters or for mini stuffed pepper hour d’oeuvres. 20 seeds
Indoors - Start 8/10 weeks before last frost, 1/4" deep with soil temperatures 70-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18" apart when danger of frost has passed when soil is 65 degrees.
Harvest - Using a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some on to mature, in color and sweeten up.
Tips - Plant in fertile, well composted soil, mulch and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.
