Just as easy to grow as green bells, but so much more festive! This 2011 AAS Winner bears big, blocky sweet bells! Sold as single plant.
The brightest bell on the block is Orange Blaze Hybrid, a crunchy-sweet pepper with early maturity, great disease resistance, and delectable flavor. Awarded an All-America Selection (AAS) for 2011, it is your best choice for fresh peppers all season long!
Orange Blaze is ready in just over 2 months from setting out seedlings in the garden. This extends its season by a week or two. And you will love these big, blocky bells! On average they reach 3 to 4 inches long and about 1½ inches wide, with 2 to 3 lobes and a smooth, uniform shape. They can be picked green if need be, but their best flavor and most vitamins occur in the final days of ripening, when the peppers abruptly turn from deep green to bright orange.
This plant is stocky and well-branched, and will appreciate a bit of support to hold up its big bounty of peppers. Expect it to reach about 2 feet high and nearly as wide, and to continue growing and producing all summer long. Where autumn is warm, Orange Blaze may continue right into the fall season.
Resistant to bacterial leaf spot and tobamo virus, Orange Blaze is healthy and vigorous -- one of the easiest peppers to grow! Try it out this season and see what all the fuss is about. You won't be disappointed!
