Answer: Peppers and tomatoes are both members of the Solanaceae family. These crops should be rotated to a new garden area each year, but there's no reason they can't be grown side by side. Peppers and tomatoes have the same cultural requirements; full sunshine, regular water, and elbow room to grow to their full potential. Since both tomatoes and peppers are warm-season crops, they need a long season to develop their fruits. Plant yours as soon as the soil and air temperatures have warmed.
