Bell Pepper

*We no longer grow this item, but feel free to peruse the information. Check out Big Bertha instead.

Jupiter Green Bell is green with 3 to 4 lobes. These peppers tend to be about 20% larger than most of the other popular varieties. They have thick walls and turn bright red when left to fully mature on the vine. Being sensitive to the cold, planting should be delayed until the danger of frost is past in the spring. Ideal temperatures are 70 to 80 degrees F during the day, and 60 to 70 degrees F at night. Usually, the plants set satisfactory crops when temperatures are between 65 and 80 degrees F and the soil is well-supplied with moisture. Avoid a soggy, water-logged soil condition when growing peppers.
