This variety works for:

  • Fresh eating
  • Roasting
  • Salsa

This pepper is: SWEET

Bell peppers are sweetest when they mature to a full color, but the crunchy green flesh is a great addition to many savory dishes. You can stuff peppers with quinoa, rice, or a mixture of cheese and beans and bake or cook rings of pepper in a skillet with a fresh egg inside.

Roast your red peppers over a burner or under a broiler, then peel and puree with hummus or slice and add to grilled eggplant and mozzarella sandwiches with fresh basil.

Growing Instructions

Instructions - Sow seeds indoors ¼” deep. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors until soil is warm.

  • Start Indoors: 8 weeks before last frost
  • Germination: 14 Days
  • Plant Outdoors: 12-24” Apart
  • Light: Full Sun

Early color in the garden!


Love these peppers!! They turn to the deep purple before they even finish filling out. I grew a variety of colored peppers this year (oranges, yellows, chocolates, reds, purple) and this is my favorite specifically because it turns from green to the purple so early in the game - waaaay before my oranges/yellows/reds did. The taste is wonderful - a little “sweeter” than the normal green bell pepper. I am a huge fan of these and will grow more than 3 plants next year. I highly recommend! (Zone 7b, piedmont NC area)

Highly recommend


Here to order again--love these peppers. We ordered these last year and grew from seed. They grew easily all summer with a great yield, all the way to the fall, and ours were disease free. The taste is great too, used as a green pepper. Something fun about these is they are so easy to notice and keep track of as they are growing, compared to green peppers.

First time


What a surprise!! Had a random, seed exchange with an acquaintance in the fall during quarantine… and now these beauties are in the garden so big and lush in June zone 7ba gardener’s delight.
