Cherry Bomb Peppers

Enter Zip Code for estimated delivery:

The Hot Pepper Cherry Bomb, 'Capsicum annuum', produces 30% to 50% more than open-pollinated types and bears round, thick-walled peppers.

The very thick walls of the Cherry Bomb allows for more absorption of pickle brine. This plant is the variety to grow for homemade pickled peppers.

The fruit is round to oval and matures from green to red. It is also resistant to Tobacco Mosaic.

Transplant outside in the spring 3 to 4 weeks after last frost date.

Note: To get a jump on the season transplant outside, use a walls-of-water or some black plastic to maintain and increase temperatures.

Plant in average garden soil with sufficient organic matter.

Peppers use quite a bit of water but prefer to be watered deeply and not too often.

Harvest when peppers begin to turn green to red.

* Heavy producer
* Disease resistant
* Medium hot
