Sweet Pepper Seed Planting Information:

Sweet peppers can be grown anywhere as long as you have 4 months without frost. You can also grow sweet peppers in containers. Sweet Pepper seeds are sensitive to temperature and moisture. Do not soak the seeds in any type of solution or water before planting, as this may damage the seeds and they may rot and may not germinate. Plant your seeds indoors between January and March, or 5 to 7 weeks before setting outside in garden. Use Miracle Gro Seed Starting Material for best germination results. When plant is 12" or taller, transplant them outdoors. Only plant peppers outdoors on a cloudy day, just prior to getting rain. Plant when soil is warm, at least 2 weeks after last frost, and when temperatures remain above 70 F. Please read the Tips on Growing Hot Peppers as Sweet peppers and hot peppers are grown in relatively the same manner. Plants can grow 3 to 4 ft tall.

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 sweet peppers when they are green or fully mature using a garden scissor so you don't damage the plant. Pick peppers as they mature to encourage new buds to form.

BS - Bacterial Speck

Scientific Name: Pseudomonas syringae

Type: Bacterium

Bacterial Speck is a disease that affects the growth of peppers and tomatoes. Symptoms include small brown spots brown in the center surrounded by a yellow ring on the leaves and curling of the leaves. In severe cases, the spots will spread to the tomato. It is caused by infected seeds and is spread by farm equipment, tools, workers, wind, and water. The infected plants should be removed to avoid further infestation. Cool moist conditions contribute to the development of the disease. The disease is favorable when temperatures are 63-75 F and usually occur when moisture and humidity are very high. Plan on using a 3 year crop rotation and avoid planting in the same location, year after year. Increasing space between the plants can help control and prevent the disease, as the disease can be spread from plant to plant in crowded conditions. Keep the fields weed free. Copper fungicides can help manage the disease. The best option is to use disease resistant varieties.

I grew 4 of these sunsation pepper plants last year in a greenhouse. I live in northwest Iowa where it gets pretty hot and inside a greenhouse it can get extremely hot. These papers did unbelievably well. Each plant produced and kept producing till October when I finally called it quits for the year. When these peppers turn Yellow they become very sweet. I gave a bunch away and everyone loved them. I grew these in grow bags using Miracle grow raised bed soil.
