CALIFORNIA WONDER Organic Pepper Seeds
(OP) 75 days
A 1928 introduction, California Wonder has the largest fruit of any open-pollinated bell pepper, maturing to 5 inches long and nearly as wide. Thick-walled and juicy, with a large cavity perfect for stuffing. Harvest when green, or wait until ripened to crimson red for a sweeter flavor. Sturdy, disease-resistant plants grow 28 to 30 inches tall, thriving in a wide range of climates.
NUMEX JOE E. PARKER ANAHEIM CHILE Organic Hot Pepper Seeds
(OP) 65 days
This may be the best all-around mild chile. Tapered 6-7 inch fruits have thick, flavorful flesh which is delicious eaten fresh, or in salsa or fajitas. Very high yielding. An improved version of Numex 6-4.
EARLY JALAPENO Organic Pepper Seeds
(OP) 60 days green, 80 days red
Compact, 2 foot plants set fruit in relatively cool conditions, making them a good choice for cold climates or earlier crops. Moderately spicy, 2 to 3 inch peppers with thick walls are great for eating fresh, grilling, or making salsa.
ROUND OF HUNGARY Organic Pepper Seeds
(OP) 55 days
Also known as a 'pimento cheese pepper', these ribbed, flattened fruits have very thick flesh and are extremely sweet. We like them in salads, and they also make tasty, striking, stuffed peppers.
YANKEE Organic Bell Pepper Seeds
(OP) 80 Days
Sturdy, 2 foot plants produce 6 to 10 medium-sized, lobed peppers per plant. These bells can be harvested when green, or leave them on the plant until red. Compared with other open pollinated varieties, Yankee has superior quality, and more uniform shape and size.
How to Plant Organic Pepper Seeds
Start indoors in cell packs or flats, 8 weeks before the last anticipated frost. At 70-90° F., germination is in 8-25 days. When the soil has warmed to at least 60° F., transplant into the garden 18-24 inches apart.
