CAPSICUM Purple Beauty - 10 HEIRLOOM Seeds

There’s more to capsicums than greens, oranges, yellows, and reds. Meet the Capsicum Purple Beauty - capsicum that turns from green to deep purple to deep red when mature and packs in extra sweetness. Its looks make Purple Beauty lovely and unique capsicum for summer gardening

Served raw in salads, they maintain their purple colour, but cooking these peppers magically turns their colour to a vibrant green. 

Capsicum Purple beauty grows on compact, productive plants. It is crisper than other bullnose varieties. Any variety of sweet capsicum can be harvested as green capsicum or left on the plant to ripen fully, becoming sweeter in the process.  One or two plants will fit easily in any garden and probably find their way into every dish! And yes, they are loaded with vitamins A, C, K, and B6.


Sow & Care Instructions 

Sow seeds indoors in seed flats - Start 8-10 weeks before the last frost date in your area, 5-6mm deep with soil temperatures 21-26 ºC – you may need to use a bottom heat pad or electric propagator. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Choose a well-drained sunny position and transplant 45cm apart when the danger of frost has passed and when soil is 20 degrees. 

Pick first fruits when they reach usable size; this helps accelerate the growth of the other capsicums on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to colour and sweeten up. 

Tips: Plant in fertile, well-composted soil, mulch, and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the southern states, including Sydney (applicable for Australia). Side dress when flowers begin to form. It is a great companion plant for basil. Warmth is essential for a good fruit set. Pick fruit regularly to prolong cropping. 

A propagation note will be supplied with the seed packet for your convenience.
