Because chili peppers prefer warm weather and do not tolerate frost, it's a good idea to transplant chili pepper seedlings into the garden 2 to 3 weeks after your last frost date. If nighttime temperatures fall below 60 degrees F, it may cause your plants to yield fewer chili peppers because of reduced fruit set. Hot chili pepper plants that are given full sun and are watered regularly will grow into upright, bushy plants that stands 2-3' tall. Mulching around hot chili pepper plants is recommended to keep the moisture level in the soil even. You should have hot chilies ready for harvesting approximately 85 days after transplanting chili pepper plants into your garden.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eVarious Uses for Small Red Hot Chili Peppers:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSmall hot red chili peppers are widely used around the world to create spicy, flavorful dishes.
