Anaheim Pepper

Anaheim Peppers are my favorite non-spicy pepper. These peppers grow somewhat long and are easy to harvest and spot because of that. Very easy to grow these and you can probably fit them easily in small container gardens.

Annual or Perennial?: Annual
Germination time: 7-14 Days
Days until maturity: 70+
Light requirements: Full sun (6+ hours)
Plant size: Medium
Spacing: 12 inches
Temperature: Warm weather
Difficulty: Moderate
Traits: Somewhat sweet, mild spiciness (500 - 2500 sch units). Can be grown in containers.
Companion plants:
Special needs: Seeds can be started up to 2 months in advance prior to planting.

When to plant: Peppers need a lot of heat, grow during summer. Start your pepper seedlings 8-10 weeks prior to transplanting outdoors.

How to grow: Care for pepper plants as you would tomato plants. If growing in containers, place in sunniest spot in the yard. If you live in an area with mild winters, it can potentially provide a second crop the following year.

How to harvest: Cut peppers off when they are of suitable size (5 - 6 inches long). Can be harvested green or allowed to ripen until red.
