Big Bertha Bell Pepper (Garden Starter Plant)
The largest elongated bell pepper available! Thick-walled, 7-inch long fruit ripen to red. Plants are disease resistant. Ideal for giant stuffed peppers. Big Bertha plants in our Alabama test garden produce 7 to 12 pounds of peppers each over a harvest season that runs from May through October. Obviously, your results will depend on care and the length of the warm season in your locale. This is a big plant, so use a tomato cage or stakes to support because when the stems get heavy with big fruit, they can break in wind or rain.
