Lunchbox Orange Sweet Snacking Pepper (Garden Starter Plant)
Fill your garden with a healthy snack for lunchtime and beyond. These sweet orange snacking peppers serve both loads of crunch and lots of beta-carotene and vitamin C. They’re ideal for eating straight off the plant, chopped fresh in salads, or sliced thin for stir-fries. Plants tend to give high yields, so consider staking with a tomato cage when planting in a windy location, to keep stems from breaking. Lunchbox Sweet Snacking Pepper plants work beautifully in containers; plant one per 18-inch pot. Underplant with dwarf marigolds for a pretty combination.
