Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: To cultivate a successful crop of Hot Wax Peppers, begin by sowing the seeds about 1/4 inch deep in well-draining soil. They favor full sun and thrive in a range of climates, making them particularly suitable for zones with shorter growing seasons. The plants will produce a bountiful harvest of waxy yellow peppers, each growing up to 4 inches in length. As they mature, ensure that they receive consistent watering but avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. Once they've reached maturity, harvest the peppers and enjoy their rich flavor in your favorite dishes.
