Emerald Giant Pepper is a robust, disease-resistant heirloom variety that yields large, square-shaped fruits in deep shades of green and red. With a vigorous growth habit, these 26-30 inch plants produce flavorful peppers that are excellent for stuffing, frying, or incorporating into salads. As an everbearing and TM-resistant cultivar, this pepper is well-suited for Southern gardens.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Peppers generally have long growing seasons and grow slowly during cool temperatures. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring. A week before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Peppers are less cold tolerant than tomatoes.
