BOTANICAL NAME: Capsicum sp.
GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: 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. Harvest when red.
