Organic Pepper: Hot - Rio Grande Planting Instructions:
Peppers need full sun for optimal growth. Sow seeds indoors in warm soil (65-70 F), 1/4" deep in flats, peat pots or cell packs, 8-10 weeks before transplanting outside. Allow seedlings to grow indoors in a warm, sunny location for as long as possible. Don't rush to transplant outside. 2-3 weeks after the last frost, plant them in a sunny location outdoors 2" deep and 12 to 24 inches apart, in rows 24 to 36" apart, or spaced about 14 to 16" apart in raised beds.

Organic Pepper: Hot - Rio Grande Harvesting Instructions:
Pepper are ready to pick about 75 days after planting, when the skin appears smooth and waxy. Peppers should be firm and shiny with a crisp texture. Use garden shears to clip the fruit from the plant instead of pulling them. Store the peppers at 50 degrees with at least 90 percent humidity, if possible. Keep them away from other fruits and vegetables due to their sensitive to ethylene gas, which causes them to age faster.
