All varieties mature within a week of one another, for armloads of color
Days to Maturity: 65 to 70
Now you can enjoy sweet bell peppers in all the glorious colors and flavors available today—without paying expensive supermarket prices for “gourmet” peppers or buying half a dozen packets of seed.
We have hand-blended, exclusively for customers, a mix of the finest variety of each color. Consisting of 5 hybrids and 2 open-pollinated types, this mix assures you of big, thick-walled, blocky bells in every color. We selected not only for appearance but uniform harvest time and superb disease resistance, so these varieties all mature within a week of one another and are vigorous garden performers. Economical and downright exciting, this is—in our opinion—the finest mix of sweet bells available anywhere.
Start Seed Sweet Rainbow Mix Pepper 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 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. Fruit is most colorful and nutritious if allowed to ripen on the plant (instead of being picked when green).
