Its sweet and juicy flesh is perfect for a variety of culinary delights, from fresh salads and salsas to stuffed dishes and roasted delicacies.

Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: To cultivate Big Red Sweet Peppers, start by planting the seeds indoors, a few weeks before the last expected frost. Once seedlings have grown strong and the threat of frost has passed, transplant them outdoors in a sunny location. These peppers thrive in well-drained soil and benefit from regular watering, especially during dry spells. As the plants mature over the 75-day period, they will produce the signature large, red, lobe-rich peppers. Regularly inspect the plants for any signs of pests and harvest the peppers once they attain their bright red hue and desired size. Given that these are open-pollinated, seeds from mature peppers can be saved and planted for the next season, continuing the legacy of the Big Red Sweet Pepper.
