BIG RED PEPPER (75 days)

Germ 10-14 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:

Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 70-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed and when soil is 65 degrees.

Harvest- Using a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to color and sweeten up.

Tips- Plant in fertile, well composted soil, mulch and provide adequate water. 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.

    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!

    Hardy and a big producer

    Started inside inside in March, transplanted in may and had fruit by the estimated date. Most of the seeds germinated, I planted the best 5 out of the 20 or so I planted. Fruits were orange to grapefruit size, great for stir fry, garden salads, fajitas, and everything else you can imagine. Thanks to the late coming winter of 2016 I was able to have peppers until start of December! I cleared out the garden just before thanksgiving and had a full 5 gallon bucket between these and the other varieties I bought from Pinetree.
