Debating bringing in the scotchies and jalepenos over weekend

redondoaaronNovember 3, 2011

I've got two scotch bonnets, one which has about 20 fruits in all stages of growth, and a jalepeno that's heavy with peppers. We're getting a freak cold front this weekend, but we'll be out of town for the next 4 days. Supposed to get down to 45F at night with light rain.

Should I bring them in over the weekend, or will they tolerate a couple cool nights? There's a little direct sun in the house, mostly indirect light though. This is my first year growing peppers.

They should be fine.

I agree, I say leave them. My peppers survived weeks in the high 30's (planted in the ground). You should be fine in the 40's for a while.

Yeah, generally you don't have to worry unless there is a danger of frost.
