    Congrtats and you'll have fun. Just remember, once you start to pick them, they will regenearate. I usually pick 20% of a plant each week or so, somtimes sooner depending on the time of year. That way, you'll get "a lot" of peppers over the season.

    When the first "mature" looking peppers appear, pick one and do a taste test. Usually, you will pick too soon and there really isn't much heat to them. So, just keep trying that unitl you get to the heat you're looking for and then start storing/cooking.

    P.S. chicken poop is a great fertilizer and adds to heat.

    sprinkle a TBLS. of epsoms salt around the drip edge two or three times throughout the growing season. They like alot of magnesium.

    Another tip for growers with short seasons, find some "Tomato/Pepper Set" and spray on the plants when they start to flower. Makes the yields much better/bigger.

    Another tip. Skip all that stuff and just use lots of good quality compost. You wont need anything else.
