This winter my Maui Purple Pepper plants were looking bad indoors, so I pulled all but one plant that looked good, added some fresh compost, and crumbled up the dried peppers that were hanging on and scattered the seeds in the soil.

They took a while to sprout, but here's the picture I posted in April. The chicken wire was to keep our 2 y.o. grandson out.

That bare spot in the middle was where grandson had already done some digging - hence, the chicken wire.

Here's what the peppers look like today out on our patio. They've already got some peppers - just in time to add heat to my garden salsa when I start getting tomatoes. I've kept this pot going for 9 or 10 years now.

Direct seeding of peppers works fine, but it takes 5 or 6 months from seed to peppers.
