I am trying to stagger my sweet pepper harvest this year, so I dont have all my plants with fruit at the same time. Can anyone tell me how long before I plant the next group?

If all goes well, peppers bear continuously until frost gets 'em. Yield should increase as plant size increases. There is no need to stagger plantings; all you need to do is find enough friends and relatives to give them to if you went overboard on the number of plants. Paul

thanks . I think I can manage that. I love it when the answer is easier than my original plan.

I've read that peppers are actually a perennial: you can keep one going for years if you bring it indoors during the winter. I am hoping to do that with my hot peppers. The little creatures are so hard to get going I darn well want them to last more than one season!
