how much time it takes to see sprout above the ground after sowing seeds?
Nor sure about outside if that is where you sowed them. But generally indoors they should sprout anywhere from 4 days to 30 days. Some of the superhots take longer than normal but generally, seeds from nearly all peppers should sprout within a couple weeks. I start mine indoors in the winter with heat mats and they usually come up withing 7 or 8 days. A few take a little longer. If a seed doesn't come up for me in under two weeks, I give up unless I am growing a kind of pepper that I know takes longer. I hope this helps. If you sow them outside, I would expect them to take a bit longer unless conditions are bad.
Also depends on the variety. Some mild peppers will pop up in a couple days. Some nuclears like the bhut jolokia can take upwards of 2 months.
I've had them take from 2-80 days.
