It is best to sow indoors so you can control germination conditions. Plant right after the last frost of spring. Soak the seeds in water for six hours before planting to facilitate germination. When the seed sprouts, wait until they have four or five leaves before moving outside. Bird’s eye peppers take about 180 days to mature but will continue to produce until the first frost.
