Keystone Resistant Giant Sweet Bell Pepper, Organic $3.25 $3.75
Southern Exposure Seed Exchange - A California Wonder type with large, blocky, pendant fruit (3½ x 4 in.). Mosaic resistant. Heavy foliage reduces susceptibility to sunscald. Thick stems hold up under heavy fruit load. Well suited to the Mid-Atlantic, but not recommended for the Deep South. Certified Organic  Heirloom  Especially well-suited to the South-East  From Small Farms   Instructions - Sow seeds 8-10 weeks before planting out after the last frost. Maintain soil temperature at least 75-85 degrees F for good germination. Peppers won’t germinate in cold potting soil–heat makes a big difference in seeds germinating in 5 days, or seeds taking up to 20 days! (Since germination can be slower if seeds don’t have enough heat, make sure to sow extra seeds in case germination is low.) Don’t overwater seeds or they may rot. Don’t rush the season: a good rule of thumb is to transfer peppers to the garden after the dogwood blossoms have fallen, or when the average soil temperature is 65 degrees F or above (usually a month after the last frost). Plant seeds 1/4" deep in well-drained soil in shallow flats.  Transplant to 3" pots as soon as several leaves have developed.  Water with warm water  Harden plants with plentiful light and set them outside on warm days for a few hours  Space plants 18-24" apart in rows or blocks.  Maintain high levels of phosphorus for sustained yields. Days to maturity are days after transplanting    Firefly Farm & Mercantile may substitute seed vendors from time to time because of the availability
