Peppers are native to tropical America but were distributed with the early migrations. Probably a more appropriate term would be “Capsicum” or “Aji” since the conquistadores mislabeled them as akin to the black pepper, but mislabels live on and on. Peppers prefer a scanty, even water supply, good drainage, full sun, and a long, hot summer. Start indoors 40 to 50 days prior to the last frost. Thin seedlings to at least 2 inches apart in the flat. Transplant out to garden after the soil has really warmed up. The best compost for peppers is higher in phosphorous than nitrogen. Kelp is well-tolerated and makes for outrageous yields. This set contains individual packets of our most popular and useful types.
