Answer: Actually, any pepper will do fine in a container. Choose a container that holds at least 2 gallons of soil, and fill it with a soil mix that drains well. Check the soil daily and keep the soil evenly moist. It will also benefit from protection from hot afternoon sun in the summer. It is a bit late to be planting peppers in the low desert. Usually we want to transplant them by about March 15 so they can establish extensive root systems before the heat hits, but if it's on your patio where it will get daily attention, it should be fine.
