When and Where to Plant: Start seeds indoors in a sunny, warm location
7-8 weeks before the last spring frost. Transplant to a sunny, well drained
location in the late spring after the soil has warmed. Loosen soil with a
spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and water thoroughly. Great in
containers and sunny flower beds.
Care: Keep soil moist, weed free, and feed every 4-6 weeks..
Harvesting: To avoid injuring plants, carefully cut or snap off fruits along with a short piece of stalk. Full size hot peppers can be picked at any color, but are spiciest when red.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
