Peppers / Chillies


Peppers are long-season, heat-loving crops that can vary from 75 days to well over 120 days before they produce usable fruits. They are best started in seedling trays and then transplanted to their final growing positions. Use a heat mat to increase the bottom temperature if you are starting seed off early indoors. This will ensure the fastest and most even germination of your precious seed.

Note that the hotter the pepper, the harder to germinate and grow. So if you are new to extreme chilli production, then do some research first.

Intolerant of any cold, leaves will burn and production will stop at the first frost. In frost-free areas, plants can live for a number of years, growing to a considerable size. Growers in the warmer areas of the country are able to harvest fruit a full 4 to 6 weeks earlier on overwintered plants.
