Sweet Pepper, Ruby King
This variety was first offered in the 1977 Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook by Dr. John Wyche. These large sweet bell peppers can be harvested when they are green, but if allowed to ripen on the vine, they will develop a beautiful red color.
Sweet Pepper: These peppers were native to North America before spreading across the world. They deserve their worldwide appeal too! Sweet peppers run the gamut from smaller lunchbox size to large boxy stuffing peppers. Their flavors can be smokey or sweet or sharp. All of which are worth exploring!
Growing Tips: Sweet peppers love sun and heat! They do great all summer long in a greenhouse as well as in the garden. Give peppers plenty of fertility and at least 12 inches between plants.
