Emerald Giant Pepper is a hearty, disease-resistant heirloom pepper variety that produces big, blocky fruits in shades of dark green and red. Vigorously growing 26-30 inch plants produce delicious peppers that are perfect for stuffing, frying, or adding to salads. Everbearing and TM resistant, this pepper is ideal 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.
