Epic origin grown by: Fabiana De Paz Vasquez, Guatemala


Planting Instructions: Peppers are best grown from transplants. Sow shallowly in cells or small pots 8 weeks before your last expected frost date. A heating matt or warm sunny windowsill works best.  Peppers will germinate very slowly in cold soil. Transplant to garden after all danger of frost, every 12-18 inches in rows 18-24 inches apart. Staking your peppers will help keep fruit-laden plants upright.
