Debating bringing in the scotchies and jalepenos over weekend

Posted by redondoaaron 10 (My Page) on

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.

thanks!

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.
