Big Red Pepper (75 Days)

Many say that this newer open pollinated variety yields better than the hybrids. You will get an abundance of 4”, thick walled, very sweet red peppers. Flavor is crisp and delicious. 

20 seeds  

PLANTING

Caspsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

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

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before 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 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.

Big Red Pepper

Big Red Pepper germinated well and plant is growing nicely. No peppers yet because it's too early, but the plant is very healthy. Seeds I buy from Pinetree are usually good. No problems.

Good seeds - right size package

The seeds I started indoors all germinated and are doing fine. Can't wait to set them out and see what they can do!
