Kitchen Minis™ Fresh Bites Red Pepper Care
This pepper plant can be planted in the ground, but the compact growth habit makes it a wonderful container plant. The Kitchen Minis™ Fresh Bites Red Pepper needs full sun to partial shade, but make sure to place the plant in bright sunlight if grown indoors. This plant will thrive in rich soil that has a neutral pH.
Growing Kitchen Minis™ Fresh Bites Red Pepper
Sweet peppers can be picked at any time, but wait until they turn red for peak flavor. It will take 60 to 90 days before the vegetables are ready to be harvested.
Growing Kitchen Minis™ Fresh Bites Red Peppers in Containers
Due to the small size, this pepper plant is intended to be grown in a container. Select a pot that measures 6 to 8 inches in diameter and has drainage holes.
Watering Kitchen Minis™ Fresh Bites Red Pepper Plants
This plant prefers to dry out mostly, so wait until the top several inches of soil is dry before watering. The Kitchen Minis™ Fresh Bites Red Pepper can handle dryer conditions, so do not be in a rush to water.
Feeding Kitchen Minis™ Fresh Bites Red Pepper Plants
Rich soil will support new growth and a plentiful crop, but routinely feeding the plant will ensure continued growth and blooms. Fertilize using a balanced plant food every 2 to 3 weeks.
