These Candy Cane Red Peppers (snack pepper) have unique, variegated foliage and fruit that ripens from green striped to solid red. Sweet flavor, thin walls, crispy texture. Perfect for eating fresh at any stage of ripeness. Candy Cane Red Peppers work well in containers or in-ground both with or without support.
Start Candy Cane Red Pepper seeds indoors or, in climate with short growing seasons, outdoors at least one week after last frost. If starting Candy Cane Red Pepper seeds indoors, allow 7 to 10 weeks for the seeds to mature into seedlings large enough to transplant safely. Set seedlings (or thin 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. Candy Cane Red Pepper fruits are most colorful and nutritious if allowed to ripen on the plant (instead of being picked when green).
