A rare striped pepper that varies in color with age. The foliage is variegated! The stripes vary in color from green, orange red & chocolate. Thin walled, slightly elongated bell & sweet. Most people don’t know that the trick to big healthy peppers that you see in the store is calcium! Peppers require calcium to reach their maximum potential & to help them combat pests naturally. Use your spent eggshells or garden gypsum to add calcium to the soil in addition to vegetable fertilizer. I use organic chicken manure based fertilizer. Do not plant peppers where you just previously planted tomatoes, eggplant or potatoes as this can make them more susceptible to disease as they are all from the same family. The pests that are attracted to these plants can remain in the soil for a while & build up & cause problems for future crops. They also use the same nutrients & can deplete the soil of what they need in particular if planted in the same spot. It’s always good as a general rule to add fresh soil & rotate all crops. This is for 10 Non GMO seeds. As a fairly new hybrid, these are still very expensive. This is the best possible price I am able to provide. Zones 4-8: Plant when all danger of frost has passed when daytime temps reach 70 degrees or start indoors with good strong lighting & transfer outdoors when temps have reached 70 degrees. Zones 9+: Plant any time of year. I combine shipping on all seed orders, you pay one flat fee for as many seeds as you would like for no additional shipping. Orders over $35 for any combination of items in my shop ship for free! All of my seeds are tested & guaranteed. Most of my seeds are fresh off of my own plants. See below for full planting instructions. PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: Start the seeds in starter pots with a premium potting soil. Plant the seeds inch deep. Place in full sun. Keep soil moist but not wet. Seeds will sprout in 1-2 weeks. Once the seeds have sprouted, continue to keep soil moist but not wet & plant them where desired. Keep in full sun. in colder climates, you can plant them in the ground & grow them as an annual or bring them indoors in winter or greenhouse kept. in warmer climates that do not freeze, you can grow these year round & they will live for several years. If you are right on the cusp & do get freezes of short duration, you can mulch heavily around the plants & cover the plants with fabric specifically designed for plants. Use premium potting soil when re-potting or garden soil if planting in the ground. Fertilize with a vegetable fertilizer. One of the most important things you can do to ensure success of any pepper plants is to provide them with a source of calcium. This will not only yield larger healthier plants & peppers but will also provide disease resistance. You can use spent eggshells, but keep in mind that they take a while to break down. You can also use garden gypsum which is what I prefer because it provides calcium without affecting the ph of the soil since peppers
