•American grown seeds
•Perennial in zones 9 and above. Annual elsewhere
This pepper is also known as the “Tuscan Pepper”, a reflection of its Italian origins. One of the best peppers for pickling! The mildly hot peppers can be picked when yellow, or allowed to mature to red. This is the pepper that is commonly served on authentic Italian antipasto platters that are the first course of Italian meals.
Start pepper seeds indoors in peat pots about 8 weeks before the last expected spring frost. Sow them 1/4" deep and keep the soil at 80-85°F until germination; provide sunlight or a grow light for 12-16 hours a day. When the outdoor temperature reaches 60-65° F during the day and no less than 50°F at night, transplant the seedlings 12-16" apart. Exposing the plants to the weather for several hours a day before transplanting may help prevent shock. Peppers also grow well in containers or raised beds. Keep the soil evenly moist and weeds under control; mulching the plants may help with this. If excess heat and sun cause the plants to wilt, provide shade.
