Peppers and Chillies

Saving seeds from Peppers is easy –

  • Sow early, preferably in February, they need a good head start to get going
  • Plant out after all chance of frost has gone.
  • Water regularly
  • When the peppers start to emerge, let them ripen on the plant

  • Cut the pepper in half, and scrape out the seeds

  • Put the seeds out to dry for a few days, they will change colour slightly as they dry
  • Bag and label and store in a cool dry place

Notes ~

Pepppers and Chillies will cross-pollinate with any other Peppers or Chillies grown nearby.

To stop cross pollination either ~

  • only grow one variety
  • or use an Isolation cage or bag
