Red Cheese Pepper Seeds (79 days)


.25 grams per seed package/Seed Package Contains Approx. 30-45 heirloom pepper seeds.

Originating in Spain many years ago, these great pimento-type peppers got their name from cheese artisans who used them to impart a red color to cheese.

Fruits are about 3" across, round and somewhat flat in shape.

Red Cheese has super thick, sweet fleshy walls that are perfect for stuffing or fresh eating. 

Very productive.  Perfect for baking or broiling as the thick flesh stands up well. 

Ripens quickly and rarely bothered by bugs. 

Seems to produce sweeter peppers when temperatures are under 90 deg. F.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Sweat Peppers:

Start these vegetable seeds indoors about 6-8 weekds before your last frost date.  Be sure to keep them in a warm place so that the soil temperature stays above 75°.  Young heirloom pepper plants like it to stay warm and will develope well if kept happy.

Only transplanted after the heirloom pepper seedlings have shown several sets of their true leaves and only once you are sure the outside soil temperature is consistently above 65°. 

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
