Growing Jalapeno Pepper Plant

I had a lot of success last year with my jalapeno pepper plant and was wondering if I need to dig it up and replant again. Thank you.


Hardiness Zone: 7b

Juanita, your planting hardiness zone is close to mine so I'll share my experiences. Unless the plant has naturally re-seeded (which is very iffy in the mid to upper U.S.) you will need to plant new seeds or new bedding plants every year. I don't count on the natural re-seeding, but if another plant happens to pop up, I just enjoy the extra harvest. Those home grown hot peppers are yummy, aren't they! Good luck and happy eats.

We lived in Orlando, FL, and had 1 pepper plant which thrived 3 whole years and bore so many peppers that we shared with everyone we knew. The 4th year, it fizzled out. It was in a very large container, and that might have had something to do with its living and bearing so long and good, I don't know.

We also grew a few tomatoes and 12 okra plants. Cooking the okra and tomatoes and a chopped onion together, then

adding just a single pepper, it made the most delicious side dish.

Good luck with your pepper plant.
