It's fun to grow a palette of peppers:
yellow, orange, red, purple, chocolate, and white bell-type fruits.
It's hard to find non-hybrid seed for peppers in all of these colors.
Pretty in salads.
BOTANICAL NAME: Capsicum sp.
Culivation similar to tomato. Start seeds indoors about two months before last hard frost. Overwatering in flats may cause damping-off or fungus. Transplant seedlings 12" apart into a sunny area when soil is warm and nights are above 50F. Protect from cutworms. Can tolerate marginal fertility but responds to calcium, phosphorous (bone meal), and magnesium. Water evenly to avoid stress and blossom end rot. Use green or wait until red.
