Dare to meet me, the infamous Ghost Pepper? Not for the faint of heart, I am one of the hottest peppers on the planet! With my fiery red pods, I grow with a fierce intensity that's matched only by my explosive heat. I require a patient gardener with a love for spice and a sunny, well-drained spot to call home. Handle me with care, and I'll reward you with a heat that's legendary. Are you ready to turn up the temperature in your dishes?

Care Guide

Peppers love the sun and require a good 6 to 8 hours of it. They need well-drained soil that's rich in organic matter, with a pH around 6.2 to 7.0. Regular watering is important, but be careful not to overwater as peppers are sensitive to waterlogging. A slow-release fertilizer applied at the time of planting and a little extra when the fruit sets can go a long way. Stake taller varieties or those with heavy fruit. Watch for pests like aphids and treat them early.

Planting Instructions

Planting 4" potted herbs and vegetables is a straightforward way to enhance your garden. Select varieties like basil, parsley, tomatoes, and lettuce that thrive in your climate. Ensure they're planted in a sunny spot, whether in containers, raised beds, or directly in the ground. Carefully remove the plants from their pots, place them in slightly larger holes, and fill in with soil, pressing down lightly. Water thoroughly and maintain consistent soil moisture, preferably watering in the early morning. Keep an eye out for pests and diseases, use organic control methods, and remove weeds promptly. Harvest herbs by trimming leaves as needed and pick vegetables at peak ripeness. This approach is ideal for a productive and flavorful garden.
