Bell peppers are sweetest when they mature to their 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 diced pepper with eggs.
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.
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

One of the most beautiful sweet peppers on the planet!

I live in zone 4 in southern MN. I thought these looked fun so I gave them a try. I started them indoors in mid February and plant my garden around Mothers Day every year. I had success and thought they had great flavor! Liked that they matured slightly faster than some peppers. Will be planting them again.
One And Done
These peppers have a beautiful color but that's about it. They were small plants and fruit was unimpressive both in size and flavor. They were planted with other pepper varieties that did much better. Won't be growing these again.
