Sweet Pepper Plant Pack
Farmer Stacey is a wizard in the greenhouse and loves to get baby plants off to a healthy start and farmer Casey's favorite crop is hot peppers. They grow about 30 varieties every summer. This plant four-pack of sweet, mild peppers were sown and grown in Vermont Compost potting soil and lovingly cared for by Farmer Stacey. With proper watering, the plants can stay in their packs for up to two weeks before planting.
- 2 Carmen: This is the sweetest pepper that Stacey and Casey grow. It’s a bit easier to ripen to red than a bell pepper. Excellent roasted, grilled or raw.
- 1 Orange Picnic: These small, orange bells are great for a quick snack, or tasty charred over a grill and dressed with olive oil.
- 1 Shishito: A super productive plant, the small green peppers are most often served as a quick and easy appetizer. Coat them with oil and either grill or put them in a hot pan until they blister, then sprinkle with salt and serve. They will ripen to red, but it’s best to pick when green. While generally mild, every 1 in 10 peppers may have a bit of heat.
Sorry, no substitutions available. Too many plants for you? Pot one up to share with a friend or neighbor.
