To ensure continued fruit set, side-dress every 3 weeks with compost or a balanced fertilizer, following package directions. 0 Install collars to thwart cutworms. Handpick hornworms from foliage. Use floating row covers to protect young plants from aphids and flea beetles. Space plants for adequate air circulation, and rotate crops regularly. 7-10 The Complete Vegetable and Herb Gardener; Hot peppers may be picked immature, or "green," but develop their full heat, flavor, and color with time. To dry, pull entire plant, or string individual peppers when they begin to color; hang in a warm, dry place. Peppers, like tomatoes and eggplants, are warm-season crops that are sensitive to cold. Before transplanting, harden off young seedlings by gradually exposing them to cooler outdoor temperatures. 70-80 Although gardeners think of peppers as annuals, in their native, frost-free regions of southern Brazil and Bolivia, they grow as shrubby perennials, reaching as tall as 18 feet. Like their wild cousins, domesticated peppers thrive in heat and should not be planted outside until nighttime temperatures are warmer than 55°F. Sow indoors in spring, 8?10 weeks before last frost, 1/4–1/2 inch deep. Seeds germinate best at 75°F?80°F. Transplant outdoors 2 weeks after last frost, 18?24 inches apart in rows spaced 2?3 feet apart. 0 After transplanting, remove the first blossoms before fruits set to encourage the plant to establish a healthy root system before it has to support fruit. Use black plastic mulch to retain soil moisture, keep weeds at bay, and provide the additional heat that peppers require. fertile, well drained 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 use in a roasted pepper salad 0 0 0 > 0 0 0 0 grossum (bell-type pepper)
