|Biker Billy peppers will mature in 66 days and should perform well in a sunny garden site in your area. Start your seeds indoors about mid-April for transplanting out into the garden by mid-June. The peppers should be ready for harvest by mid- to late-August. You can help your pepper plants mature quickly by keeping the soil warm with a blanket of black plastic and covering the plants with cloches (hot caps) if your June weather is still cool at night. Good luck with your peppers!
