Planting sweet bell pepper seeds is easy to do in most USDA zones. Technically a tropical perennial, the bell pepper plant is grown as an annual during the frost-free growing seasons of each zone. Bell pepper seeds should be started indoors 8 to 10 weeks before you intend to plant them in your garden. Because nighttime temperatures below 60 degrees F can cause problems with fruit set, in some cases, it is wise to plan on transplanting bell pepper seedlings into the garden 2 to 3 weeks after your zone's last frost date. Producing a relatively compact plant with a shallow root system, sweet bell pepper seeds for planting in the home garden can easily be grown in containers.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eVarious Uses for Sweet Orange Bell Peppers:\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eHeirloom sweet bell peppers are a culinary staple in restaurants and home kitchens around the world.
