Early Summer bell peppers are large (4-5 in.), thick-walled, and bright yellow when ripe. Sweet flavor and crunchy, meaty texture make Early Summer an excellent choice to grow for eating raw or cooked. Highly disease-resistant, well-shaped hybrid plants grow 18-24 in. tall and 12-18 in. wide.
Growing Early Summer Bell Pepper Seeds
Plant Bell Peppers: Start bell pepper seeds indoors in cell packs or flats, 8 weeks before the last anticipated frost. At 70-90°F., germination is in 8-25 days.
Keep pepper seedlings in a bright light and in temperatures of at least 70°F. until ready to transplant. When garden soil has warmed to at least 60°F., transplant into the garden 18-24 in. apart.
Harvest Bell Peppers: Use a small sharp knife or scissors to cut peppers instead of pulling them off, which can cause damage to the plant.
