Traditional sweet Italian pepper with great flavor, growing 7 to 12 inches long. Plants produce an abundance of sweet fruits to use green or when ripened to a beautiful red. Great for frying, grilling, or stuffing. Use in salads or stir-fries.

SOWING…Start seed indoors 6 to 8 weeks before last frost. Plant seed 1 inch apart and cover with ¼ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Place seed starting tray in a very warm spot (night and day) and cover with polyethylene to preserve the moisture until germination is complete. Then place in a warm, sunny window.

THINNING…When plants are 2 to 3 inches tall, transplant 2 inches apart in another tray. After danger of frost is past, transplant outdoors in a sunny location in rows 2 to 3 feet apart, spacing plants 18 to 24 inches apart in the row.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 7 to 14 days depending on soil and temperature conditions.

REMARKS…Harvest fruit often to promote more production. Cut fruit instead of pulling from plant to avoid injury.
