As popular as the tomato in home gardens, peppers should not be transplanted to the garden as early. Pepper transplants may be placed in the garden after night temperatures are reliably 50°F or above; plants subjected to cold nights often become stunted, reducing pepper production. A temperature range of 60°F to 80°F provides the best growth and fruiting. Site plants in full sun (minimum 4 hours) and in soil with a pH range of 5.5 to 6.8. Space 2 to 3 feet apart. Support is usually needed to prevent fruit laden plants from toppling under their own weight or in a strong wind.
