About Grow Hot Peppers


I’m Jenny, the creator of Grow Hot Peppers, and I run this fiery site with my partner Jesse.

Our Mission: We’re here to help you grow your favorite hot peppers in pots (mild is okay too 😉) so you can make the spicy recipes you want without being limited to what’s in stores.

Why pots? Not everyone has land for an in-ground garden — container gardening helps you grow peppers in a way that fits your space. It’s beginner-friendly too!
