Big golden bells that nearly glow | Resistant to just about every pepper problem

Days to Maturity: 70 from transplant

These bright, shiny golden bell peppers look almost too perfect to eat—but after the first bite, you'll be chomping them down with wild abandon. Early Sunsation Hybrid is the most effectively disease resistant bell pepper to come along in a while, and its combination of terrific appearance, sweet flavor, and nice crunchy bite is just unbeatable.

These bells are very well-shaped and uniform, with 4 lobes that look great when sliced for rings. The fruit measures about 4½ inches long and 4 inches wide, and is quite heavy, thanks to thick, juicy skin. Smooth-skinned and glossy, Early Sunsation glows on compact 2-foot plants.

Best of all, it's got terrific disease resistance, so you can expect large yields of very healthy fruit. Resistant to all viruses, it also withstands BST races 1, 2, and 3, PVY, and TMV. Nothing but good-looking fruit and plenty of it on Early Sunsation plants.

Early Sunsation, as its name suggests, gets off to a quick start in the garden, so you'll be harvesting it a week or more before many others. Start seeds indoors or, in climate with short growing seasons, outdoors at least one week after last frost. If starting indoors, allow 7 to 10 weeks for the seeds to mature into seedlings large enough to transplant safely. Set seedlings (or thin direct sown seedlings) 2 feet apart in full sun. If planting many seedlings, space rows about 3 feet apart. Fertilize when the blooms appear, and water well. Fruit is most nutritious if allowed to ripen on the plant.
