Just as easy to grow as green bells, but so much more festive
Days to Maturity: 65 to 70 from transplant
All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2011
The brightest bell on the block is Orange Blaze Hybrid, a crunchy sweet pepper with early maturity, great disease resistance, and delectable flavor. Awarded an All-America Selection (AAS), it is your best choice for fresh peppers all season long.
Orange Blaze is ready in just over 2 months from setting out seedlings in the garden. This extends its season by a week or two. And you will love these big, blocky bells. On average they reach 3 to 4 inches long and about 1? inches wide, with 2 to 3 lobes and a smooth, uniform shape. They can be picked green if need be, but their best flavor and most vitamins occur in the final days of ripening, when the peppers abruptly turn from deep green to bright orange.
This plant is stocky and well-branched, and will appreciate a bit of support to hold up its big bounty of peppers. Expect it to reach about 2 feet high and nearly as wide, and to continue growing and producing all summer long. Where autumn is warm, Orange Blaze may continue right into the fall season.
Resistant to bacterial leaf spot and tobamo virus, Orange Blaze is healthy and vigorous—one of the easiest peppers to grow. Try it out this season and see what all the fuss is about. You won’t be disappointed.
