Pepper - Sweet Pickle - Capsicum annuum
Tender Annual This pepper looks like it's decked with Christmas lights when it's covered with red, orange, yellow and purple peppers all at the same time. The bush produces heavy yields of 2" long, 1" wide sweet peppers that grow in clusters. This highly ornamental pepper is also adaptable to containers. As its name suggests it is a favorite for pickling.
Soil and Water: Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water.
Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. Harvestable from the green stage through the color changes.
