Glowing golden bells
Days to Maturity: 84 from transplant
Glowing yellow bells reach 4? inches long and wide, with thick walls and juicy, crisp texture. Packed with vitamin C and more flavor than you will ever find in store-bought bells, Admiral is a must-grow.
This vigorous plant leafs out nicely, offering good protection for the fruit from sunscald during their long ripening process. Very disease resistant, Admiral Hybrid plants stand up to tobacco mosaic virus, stip, bacterial leaf spot, and potato virus Y, among others. Unbeatable even for first-time gardeners, who are more likely to get big crops and few problems from this bell.
Start seeds indoors or, in climate with short growing seasons, outdoors at least one week after last frost. If starting indoors, allow 7 to 10 weeks for the seeds to mature into seedlings large enough to transplant safely. Set the transplants (or thin the direct sown seedlings) 2 feet apart in full sun. If planting many seedlings, space rows about 3 feet apart. Fertilize when the blooms appear, and water well.
