Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Direct seeding is not recommended. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and use mulch for disease and weed control.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. Did You Know? This variety is particularly high in vitamins C and A, but remember the smaller and thinner the pepper is the hotter it will be.
