Purple Beauty Bell Peppers grows on compact plants which produce a good yield of blocky, deep-purple peppers. Their mild, sweet flavor and unique color make them a perfect addition to a salad.
Spacing: 10-12" (1 plant per sq. foot)
Exposure: Full Sun to Part Shade
Soil & Water & Food: Peppers require deeply-worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water. The soil must drain well, yet hold enough moisture to keep the plants in production. To maintain a proper balance, work some organic matter such as compost or humus into the soil when planting to enhance moisture retention. Use mulch to prevent excessive evaporation from the soil during the dry summer months. Don't overfertilize. This tends to make the plants develop lush foliage at the expense of fruit production.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. These peppers may be harvested from the green stage through the color changes.
Did You Know? Sweet peppers are loaded with vitamins C and A. Red peppers contain twice the vitamin C and eleven times the beta carotene of green peppers.
