  • How to save pepper seeds?
  • To store pepper seeds, collect them on a clean, dry paper towel and place them in a dry indoor space. The seeds can take several days to fully dry out. Once the seeds feel dry to the touch, move them to an airtight bag or sealed glass container and store in a dark, dry location with a temperature range of 35-50 degrees Fahrenheit. Properly stored pepper seeds can survive for up to 2 years.
  • How to plant pepper seeds?
  • Fill each cell of the seed tray with damp, nutrient-rich soil. If you are planting new seeds, plant only one seed in a cell. Old seeds tend to have a lower germination rate, so it's best to plant 2-3 of them in each cell. Sow the seeds at a depth of ¼-1/2 inch, cover them with soil and apply water.
  • When to start pepper seeds indoors?
  • You can start pepper seeds indoors 6-8 weeks prior to the final frost date for your region.
  • How long does it take for pepper seeds to germinate?
  • The germination period for pepper seeds varies with the variety. Seeds of faster-growing pepper varieties can germinate in 7-10 days. The seeds of slower-growing peppers can take 4-6 weeks to germinate.
