Pick a Peck of Peppers

To grow peppers successfully, plant them where they will receive at least six hours of sunlight. When first set out, transplants require thorough waterings, but once established and rooted, they are remarkably drought-tolerant. Well-drained soil is a must; peppers work great in raised beds and prefer good air circulation around the plants.

Use a sharp pair of clippers or a knife to remove the pepper from the stem. When picking hotter varieties, such as jalapeños or habaneros, you might want to wear gloves. While the pepper may not immediately irritate your hands, you could get a nasty surprise if you inadvertently wipe your eyes.
