A blockbuster variety for yield, quality and flavor. These sturdy plants bear big, plump, juicy-sweet peppers that ripen to a gorgeous glossy orange. Plants are both vigorous and high yielding with excellent disease resistance. Gourmet Orange peppers are real beauties, heavy for their size, with thick walls, crunchy texture and fine sweet taste. Enjoy their delicious crispy flesh as a snack right out of the garden and use them for colorful, nutritious grilling, salads, stirfries or sautés.

STARTING SEEDLINGS

In early spring, start indoors about 2 months before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 50-55F (10-13C) range. Sow seeds 1/4 in deep and 1 in. apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm, 80-85F (27-29C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside.  When seedlings are ready to plant outside. When seedlings are 2 in. tall, transplant 2 in. apart into deeper containers or individual pots. Maintain at 70-75F (21-24C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions. Plant out 2.5 ft. apart into rich soil in full sun.  

GROWING NOTES

Don't plant peppers outdoors until night temperatures are above 55F (13C). Prepare soil with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots. Mulch plants to maintain even soil moisture. Stake or cage your plants to help support their heavy fruit set.

HARVEST AND USE

 Ready to pick in late summer, Gourmet Orange peppers start out green and ripen up to rich, bright orange. The glossy fruits have a great crunchy texture, delicious flavor and are especially high in vitamins A and C. Carefully cut rather than pull peppers from plants. Enjoy sliced up raw, sautéed, stir-fried or grilled.
