Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Transplant seedlings into 4”pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant out into the garden after danger of frost has past, typically late May in western Oregon.
Sweet Pepper, Bácskai Fehér (Organic)
Capsicum annuum. 75 days.
Richly flavored Hungarian sweet pepper that is great both fresh and cooked. Attractive, large, conical fruit with a curled tip. Pale yellow fruit ripen to bright orange then red. These colors make Bácskai Fehér a great addition to a market display, as they offer color variation in the booth (and on the plate) even when under-ripe. Very high yielding – hands down the most productive Hungarian sweet pepper we have grown. Another gem originally sourced from a Hungarian seed packet.
To save seed, wait until fruits are fully ripe. Remove seeds from fruit and dry on windowsill or with a fan. Isolate from other pepper varieties by at least 500 feet.
