Unless you live in a year-round warm climate, start seeds indoors eight to ten weeks before last spring frost. Keep soil temperature warm (75-80°F) for best germination. Be patient. Peppers can be slow to germinate. Harden off young plants 10 days before transplanting and plant outdoors in late spring after soil temperature has warmed.

Habanero peppers require a long hot season to fully mature. For hottest peppers, harvest when they turn bright orange.
