About Capsicum Orange Imported
Bell peppers are one of the most popular vegetables grown in home gardens. The bell pepper is native to Central and North America and is easy to grow. There is now a much wider variety of peppers to choose from with different colours and even different shapes.
Peppers are a tender, warm-season crop. They resist most pests and offer something for everyone: spicy, sweet or hot, and a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. For this page, we will focus on sweet bell peppers.

Capsicum Orange Imported care
- Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last spring frost date
The temperature must be at least 70 degrees F for seed germination, so keep them in a warm area for the best and fastest results
Start pepper seeds three to a pot, and thin out the weakest seedling
- Let the remaining two pepper plants spend their entire lives together as one plant
The leaves of two plants help protect peppers against sunscald, and the yield is often twice as good as two segregated plants
Begin to harden off plants about 10 days before transplanting
A week before transplanting, introduce fertilizer or aged compost in your garden soil
After the danger of frost has passed, transplant seedlings outdoors, 18 to 24 inches apart (but keep paired plants close to touching
Soil should be at least 65 degrees F, peppers will not survive transplanting at temps any colder
- Northern gardeners can warm up the soil by covering it with black plastic
Put two or three match sticks in the hole with each plant, along with about a teaspoon of fertilizer
- They give the plants a bit of sulfur, which they like
