BOTANICAL NAME: Capsicum sp.
Cultivation 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. Rich soil early in the season, with plenty of kelp meal or other potassium source, will help the plant make a strong, well-foliaged frame to carry fruit and shade it from sunscald damage.
