As one of the countries consuming the spiciest food, India has multiple varieties of hot peppers to suit the requirements of different regions. Most of the recipes are incomplete without it. Hot peppers are the taste enhancers for so many dishes.
Light Requirement: Partial sunlight for 3-4 hours in the morning/evening and with shade during the afternoon.
Soil Requirement: Chillies require well-drained, light, and nutrient-rich soil.
Water Requirement: Keeping the soil moist at all times is vital.
Harvesting: You can either harvest the chilies when they’re green or wait for them to turn red.
Prepare your pot with soil. Sow 2-3 seeds in a 1.25 cm deep hole in each pot or in holes located 20-30 cm apart from each other if being grown in a garden. Cover it with a thin layer of soil and spray water gently, making sure the soil is moist.
Partial sunlight around 3-4 hours of morning/evening sunlight with some afternoon shade.
After 50-60 days, Chillies can be harvested green and you can start picking the fruits.
