Cherry Bomb needs a loamy and sandy soil with a ph of 7.0 to 8.5 (neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil).

Growing Cherry Bomb from seed

Sow at a depth of approx. 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) and aim for a distance of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) between Chili pepper plants. For optimal germination, soil temperature should be a minimum of 18°C / 64°F.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Cherry Bomb about 38 days before your last frost date.
