Hot Pepper Seeds (Capsicum annuum)
Peppers are more likely to mature if started early indoors. They need full sun and a well-drained soil. They are best watered thoroughly but not frequently. If you bring pepper plants indoors over winter and keep them relatively dry, you're likely to be rewarded with massive harvests by early summer. Packets contain 20 or more seeds.
