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.
Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant.
Water well with soaker hoses during dry and hot spells.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.
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.

Stuart from Graham, NC..I grew Giant Marconi peppers for the first time last season and everybody just loved them, including myself..The Marconis' were recomended to me by a local greenhouse owner and now everybody is wanting me to grow some more of those "BIG" peppers this season..If you like stuffed or grilled peppers then these are some of the best around.
