Sow & Care Instructions
Sow seeds indoors in seed flats - Start 8-10 weeks before last frost date in your area, 5-6mm deep with soil temperatures 21-26 ºC – you may need to use a seedling heat pad or electric propagator. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Choose a well-drained sunny position and transplant 45cm apart when the danger of frost has passed and when soil is 20 degrees.
Pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other capsicums on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to colour and sweeten up.
