How to Grow Pimento L Pepper:

  • Sowing: Start pepper seeds internally about 8 weeks before the last expected spring frost. Sow seeds 1/4″ deep using peat pots for planting. Before germination, the soil temperature should be 80-85 degrees F. Provide sunlight for 12-16 hours a day and harden the seedlings for several hours a day. With an outside temperature of 60-65 degrees F during the day and at least 50 degrees F at night, transplant the seеdlings 12-16″ apart. Peppеrs also grow well in containers or raised beds.
    • Plant Spacing: 12-24" in rows; 14-16" in raised beds.
  • Growing of Pimento L Pepper: The soil must be uniformly moist for a successful and fertile crop, free from weeds. Mulching may be needed. Provide shade to prevent the plants from withering in the scorching sun and heat.
    • Soil Requirements for Pimento L Pepper: Moist, well-drained loamy soil; slightly acidic to neutral pH.
    • Pimento L Pepper Days to Germination for: 7-14 days.
    • Light Preference of Pimento L Pepper: Full sun, at least 8 hours of direct sunlight.
    • How and When to Harvest Pimento L Pepper: Harvest sweet peppers as desired and necessary. When the pepper turns yellow and hangs on the bush for longer, the sweeter it tastes. Full ripening of the pepper stops further growth, and the collection of green peppers lengthens the growing season. It wоuld be best if you used a sharp knife or scissors to pick the peppers.
    • Pimento L Pepper Seeds Days to Maturity: up to 95 days.
