Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Sonny-Sweet peppers can take up to 90 days to mature when planted as starter plants. Some hot peppers can take up to 150 days to mature. As you most likely know when planting with seeds this would take approx. 8 to 10 weeks longer than this to mature and produce full size fruit. Unless you live in the Southwest where warmer temperatures last well into fall I would not try and start peppers this late in the season. I would wait until next spring after any expected frost before planting peppers.

Please ask if you have any other questions.
