A classic cone-shaped sweet pepper, and one of our favorites. Thick-fleshed, sweet and juicy, you’ll love them raw or cooked. A compact heavy-producing plant that does well in our cool climate. We freeze a lot and use in dishes all winter.
Start seeds indoors about 8-10 weeks before last frost (late Feb-early March). Seeds germinate best in warm soil; once seedlings are established, keep them at cooler temps (55℉) to toughen them up. Transplant 2-4 weeks after last frost when soil temp. reaches 75°F ; space 14-18” apart.
