Out of stock

Capsicum Orion (USDA Organic) Pepper Hybrid, Capsicum 'Orion', is a plant with bountiful foliage that produces large, smooth, thick-walled fruits. Its blocky, 4-lobed peppers are thick walled, widely adapted, and tolerant to hot weather.

At 65 days the fruit can be harvested green, or if left on the plant, will turn red at about 85 days. Multiple disease resistances make Orion a superstar in your garden!

Capsicum refers to a wide variety of tropical pepper plants with the genus of the same name. The name is perhaps derived from the Latin "capsa," or box for the pod-like fruit.

Capsicum 'Orion' are frequently used both chopped and raw in salads, or cooked in stir-fries or other mixed dishes. They can be sliced into strips and fried, roasted whole or in pieces, or chopped and incorporated into salsas or other sauces.

Capsicum is a relative of the tomato and requires similar growing conditions.
