Lilac Bell Pepper (F1 Hybrid 70 Days)

Lilac Bell is a beautiful, full sized, sweet bell pepper that starts out yellow and gradually turns a light purple with distinctive yellow stripes. This early beauty will make the complete color change even in the North. 

20 seeds  


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.

Lilac peppers

I have grown lilac peppers for several years but the seeds are getting harder to find. They germinated well and are growing in the garden but it is too soon for harvesting fruit.

What a beauty!

SO, last winter, I was very undecided about what pepper seeds I wanted to buy, so I bought Lilac Bell, Chocolate Bell, King of the North, and Boquinto peppers (in addition to the jalapenos that I already had). Eight months later, the Lilac Bell has done twice as well as any of the others. The little peppers start out greenish yellow but by the time they are anywhere near ready to pick, the peppers are a deep, beautiful purple that turns lighter as the fruit matures. I plan on buying and planting more next year
