Start seedlings indoors 8 weeks before transplanting. Sow seeds 1/4-inch deep. Keep soil moist and near 80F using bottom heat. Peppers may take up to two weeks to germinate. Transplant outdoors when daytime soil temperatures are near 80F and nighttime temperatures are above 50F.
From Baker Creek:
An exciting bell pepper for short-season growers. This variety produces nice, blocky fruit that are nicely flavored when picked green or red. Plants are productive even in most of the Northern areas.
Arguably the best red bell for northern gardeners where the seasons are cool and short. Nice blocky fruits, great sweet flavor.
Heat Scale: Sweet ..0-1-2-3-4-5.. Hot
70 days from transplant.
