Q.What peppers do best in our area? When should we plant them?
A. Plant pepper transplants sometime after April 1. All peppers do well in our area. The bell peppers are more difficult than the hot peppers. The summer is sometimes too hot for them and they only yield in the fall when temperatures moderate.
