Large, blocky bell peppers have thick, sweet flesh. Dark green fruit turns red when ripe. Vigorous plants produce heavy yields. Emerald Giant is a good variety for the south. (78 days)
Each packet contains approximately 25 seeds.
Start seeds indoors 8 to 10 weeks before last frost date of spring. Surface sow or barely cover the seeds, which benefit from the light to speed germination. Keep the seed-tray warm, but do not allow to dry out. When sprouts appear, move to a sunny window or grow light.
Set out well-developed transplants after last frost date when weather is warm. Peppers need rich soil for healthy growth. May be used green or ripe.
