Early orange bell has thick juicy walls and fruity sweet taste. Medium-large, very blocky fruits are bigger and easier to grow under a wider variety of conditions. Strong compact plants set plentiful fruits without crowding. Packet: 20 seeds. Days to Maturity or Bloom: 65 green, 85 red ripe GROWING SEEDLINGS: Sow seed in seed flats, in late March or about 8 weeks prior to transplanting outdoors. If possible, maintain soil temperatures 80-90°F (27-32°C). Pepper seeds germinate very slowly in cooler soil. When the first true leaves just show, transplant into Quad Pot. Grow plants at approx. 70°F (21°C) day and 60°F (16°C) nights. COLD TREATMENT: Exposing the seedlings to controlled cold treatments can increase the number of flowers and fruits. When the third true leaf appears, grow the plants at a minimum night temp. of 53-55°F (12-13°C) for 4 weeks. The plants should receive full sunlight. After 4 weeks adjust temp. to 70°F (21°C) day and night. If this technique is used, peppers should be seeded 1-2 weeks earlier than usual. HARVEST AND STORAGE: Pick the first peppers promptly when they reach full size to encourage further fruit set. Wash and hold at 45°F (7°C) and 95% humidity.
