Peppers

Likes warm weather; poor growth if planted too early. Benefit from row coverings and used during cool weather or night. Likes light, slightly acidic soil but will do all right in sandy soils.

Optimum growing temperature is 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit for sweet peppers and 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit for hot peppers. Growth slows at 80 degrees Fahrenheit for sweet peppers and 95 degrees Fahrenheit for hot peppers. Hot peppers also must reach full maturity for maximum flavor.
