Sweet Purple Bell Pepper

Another exciting pepper to add to your collection of beautiful sweet bell peppers. It’s so pretty, some gardeners grow it for its ornamental beauty in beds, or large containers with flowers. Thick walled, sweet, crisp and moist. Mix with red, green, yellow and orange peppers for a palette of colorful veggies.

When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost when air temperature is at least 70° F and soil temperature is at least 65° F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 8 to 10 weeks before average last frost. In USDA zones 9 & 10, can also sow in midsummer for fall crop.

Harvesting: Harvest peppers when purple, before they mature and turn red.
