LILAC BELL PEPPER (70 days)

Germ 10-14 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

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.

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
