90 days. This variety matures a little later than regular bell peppers but produces much sweeter and tastier fruits. Vigorous plants produce high yields of high quality fruits that ripen to a deep red color.
75-80 days. Delicious mildly hot flavor, excellent for
roasting or frying; good yields of very large chili peppers. Grows to 6-10 inches. Fantastic addition to Homemade Salsa!
70 days. An excellent
green bell pepper of nice size and very good yield. Upright 2 ft tall plants
bear prolific fruits that are 4-5" long and almost the same width across.
A long growing season, high-quality fruit, and sweet flavor
have resulted in California Wonder Bell Pepper becoming one of the most popular
open-pollinated bell peppers for both home and market growers.
70-75 days. Purple
Beauty Bell Peppers are around 3 to 4 inches long as well as wide. They develop
into an eggplant shade of purple and eventually to a reddish color. The compact
bushy plants produce an abundance of fruit on the crown as well as on the limbs. Avoid
a soggy, water-logged soil condition when growing peppers.
75-95 days. Gorgeous chocolate colored habanero
peppers. Don’t let the color fool you; these are not candy, but rather
flaming-hot fruit that carry a massive 300,000 Scoville units of heat!
75-85 days. A very productive and disease
resistant pepper. It is here over a 100 years ago Giuseppe Nardiello
and wife Angela grew this pepper in the southern region of Italy. Jimmy Nardello peppers are sweet,crisp and light when eaten raw. Considered one of the best frying pepper.
75 days. Large plant bears club-shaped fruit, very hot and pungent with a distinctive flavor. Serrano
peppers are around 5 times spicier and hotter than jalapeno peppers at a
fairly hot 10,000 – 20,000 scoville heat units on average.
70-80 days. A very
tasty mild Jalapeno type, with the same delicious flavor, but a lot less heat.
