Burpee Peppers 'Hot Lemon'
|BUR-PEP-910-F45R||4.5 Burpee Pot|
This heirloom from Ecuador has a spicy aroma and is best fresh, in sauces or for drying.
Generally, peppers are problem-free from pests and disease, but the same pests and diseases that plague tomatoes and eggplants will occasionally attack them. With basic precautions, you can keep your peppers "clean." Avoid working in your garden after a rain because diseases can spread rapidly among wet pepper plants.
Be sure to weed your garden. Weeds provide a refuge for garden pests and can also spread diseases to nearby healthy pepper plants.
