Capsicum annuum

Min Qty: 0.5 g

Description: 1928 Heirloom. Great stuffed or sliced, sure to become your favorite sweet pepper. Turns from green to crimson red, a familiar site as it has been the standard bell pepper for decades.

Planting Instructions: 75 days. Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before last frost and maintain soil temp above 75F to improve germination and keep seedlings happy. Plant seeds 1/4" deep in flats or peat pots with sterile potting mixture. Keep evenly moist until germination in about 7-10 days and provide plenty of light. Transplant outdoors after the seedlings have several sets of true leaves and outdoor temps are consistently above 65F. Black plastic can be used to help heat the soil. Choose a location that gets full sun and soil that is rich and well drained. Space plants 18-24" apart in rows 36" apart. Peppers are very tender and do not tolerate frost. They do best when provided a steady supply of water.
