How to grow Chili pepper 'Sport'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Sport likes a position of full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Sport is thought of as tender, so remember to wait until your soil is warm and the night time temperature is well above freezing before moving outside. Sport needs a loamy and sandy soil with a ph of 7.0 to 8.5 (neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil).

Growing Sport from seed

Try to aim for a seed spacing of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) and sow at a depth of around 0.2 inches (0.5 cm). Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

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

Transplanting Sport

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Sport is a tender plant.
