Want to add a little spice to your life? Get sowing. But take care. They are very delicate and react badly to overly hot or cold weather. Sow the seeds in light, well-drained soil, and keep in a sunny location at a temperature of at least 16°C. Your seeds will sprout in 16-20 days. If you want them to be extra spicy, transplant the plant outside six to eight weeks after sowing.
Harvest the pepper at the point that best suits your purpose. If you want to dry them or ground them, harvest when the peppers are fully red but still firm. If you want to add them to dishes, gather just a tad bit earlier. To dry after harvest, put a string through the peppers and hang them in the sun until they are dry and brittle.
Get creative in the kitchen.
