Spirit Eagle says:

I have had awesome yields in 5gal. buckets and fabric bags 2 plants in each. The earth garden produces huge plants unless you top them but even then the yield is lower but better. Best way to guarantee you have them every year is to remove all leaves and cut them down to 4 or 5in. before bringing them in house to over winter imho.

Cubanelle is a sweet pepper only 65 days!! I get it from MIGARDENER


Amazing upload!

Miriam Bartley says:

I have never been satisfied with my pepper production, so I will try your suggestions.

Scott Smith says:

I grow the banana peppers in garden. Very productive and early. In states where I'm at hot banana are also called hot wax. Nice heat to them for picking, mix the sweet and hot for a nice salsa that doesn't blister your tongue.
Fun fact I have observed, sweet banana peppers grow with point of pepper grows downward to the soil, the hot ones point to the sky until they get heavy enough that gravity turns them downward. If you forget to label, this will help out.
Remember with bells or sweets and also hits, you can get cross pollination and bells and or sweets can get spicy!

Ancient Gardening says:

Start peppers a month before starting tomatoes, and start peppers now if you haven't already. Definitely plants in containers go to seed early, which helps peppers along amazingly, since they just keep going and going, but they do grow relatively slowly compared to tomatoes, so keep them separate if you want to keep the peppers from getting overgrown.

Susan Johnson says:

Very Informative – I also live in a cold climate (Minnesota, USA) I'm going to try a couple of these starting early sounds like fun and I love peppers. Salsa is my favorite food group!

Karen InSask says:

I’ve been told that when it says 60 days it means from transplant date not from seed start date.

Nim says:

I’m in Edmonton, so zone 3b. I grow my peppers in a Vegtrug, (a table style raised bed with a cover). It was my only garden bed when I was living in a rental but now I have a bigger garden and the Vegtrug turned into a dedicated pepper bed. It worked beautifully last year with sweet peppers. I’m excited to try some hot peppers this year.

yssubed2 says:

I have overwintered some. I put them in a cool basement and let them go dormant. A little water every 3 weeks or so. Will bring them upstairs for more light, heat and watering in March and you will have your first batch of peppers early in the season.

yssubed2 says:

You should try Hungarian Blacks. They look like jalapeños but are black rather than green. The plants are stunning,dripping with purple blossoms and black fruit. They look a little gothic. My other suggestion would be Seranos – classic narrow hot pepper, not crazy hot. Best when harvested green but leave some to turn red for great colourful preserves (you can add some of your Hungarian wax for some more colour).

concert610 says:

Lol love your reaction to his eating hot peppers. I grew a few ghost peppers last year. For whatever reason my jalapeño plant had some pods that were mild like a normal pod and some were just unbelievably hot. Same plant picked at the same time. No idea why that happened. I tried to over winter my peppers with no success. I will be trying a different soil mix next time. Zone 8B we have the issue peppers shut down after 90°F.

Michael Marchione says:

Good info from both of you. May have to bring in a pepper plant this fall for fun.

tobruz says:

Best sweet productive peppers in Ontario for me would be sweet banana peppers
I grow in a 5 gallon bucket that’s self watering and home – made one of the best moves I’ve made

C Burella says:

What about growing conditions? Amount of sunlight, soil conditions, water requirements?

Two Turtle Garden & Outdoors says:

Interesting. I'm only starting my peppers mid March. Worked well last year, but I might try a couple early and see. Thanks.

icouldjustscream says:

I'm going to start some mad hatter, orange blaze and purple star. Black pearl for a hot. Oh, and a chilli.

Alberta PATRIOT says:

I grow my sweet peppers in containers in unheated greenhouse ( high tunnel house structure)
