Purple Beauty Pepper (71 Days)

This open-pollinated variety is more than a novelty, a nice thick-walled pepper that yields late here, but in the main season in most of the country. The purple color adds a lot to the appeal—a deep, midnight, eggplant purple. Plants are compact and set fruit in both the crown and on the limbs. Resistance to tobacco mosaic virus

PLANTING

Capsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slow germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after the last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch-off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with compost if needed. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

    Purple beauty pepper

    Overall, our order came the quickest from this company of the three we ordered from. I ordered a menagerie of different peppers as I wanted to expand our variety this year. Thus far the only peppers I have had surface are there are only 3 of them are the sweet red cherry peppers. I bought several different kinds and none have sprouted. I have never had a problem growing peppers in my life. I’m not sure if it’s a weird year, or if it’s the seeds. To say I don’t recommend this product really isn’t fair to the company, but would I buy this particular one again with the results I’ve had? Probably not.
