Organic Pepper: Hot - Rio Grande Planting Instructions:
Peppers need full sun for optimal growth. Sow seeds indoors in warm soil (65-70 F), 1/4" deep in flats, peat pots or cell packs, 8-10 weeks before transplanting outside. Allow seedlings to grow indoors in a warm, sunny location for as long as possible. Don't rush to transplant outside. 2-3 weeks after the last frost, plant them in a sunny location outdoors 2" deep and 12 to 24&334; apart, in rows 24 to 36" apart, or spaced about 14 to 16" apart in raised beds.

Organic Pepper: Hot - Rio Grande Harvesting Instructions:
Pepper are ready to pick about 75 days after planting, when the skin appears smooth and waxy. Peppers should be firm and shiny with a crisp texture. Use garden shears to clip the fruit from the plant instead of pulling them. Store the peppers at 50 degrees with at least 90 percent humidity, if possible. Keep them away from other fruits and vegetables due to their sensitive to ethylene gas, which causes them to age faster.

The best seeds we've ever planted April 13, 2016
Reviewer: Beth from Warner, NH United States  
Our family began using My Patriot Supply seeds last year and were very impressed with the quality and crop we received. These are high quality seeds that I can feel good about knowing they are GMO free. This spring I planted early and a friend came to help. She brought some organic seeds from a different company to plant as well and within 24 hours the MPS seeds were already sprouting while hers took more than a week to begin popping up. I highly recommend MPS to anyone who is looking to plant a garden!

Speedy Delivery! February 3, 2016
Reviewer: InlandNorthwest from Newman Lake, WA United States  
Seeds packed in well-marked, resealable  foil packets. Would have liked more plant description, i.e. height, days til germination, days til harvest, any special needs (afternoon sun protection, etc.) instead of instruction to visit website for more information on packet. Have requested hardcopy catalog for reference.  Still too early to start/direct plant...
