Yes to Yellow Pepper is a hybrid, sweet pepper variety that pairs well with our Orange You Sweet and Right on Red varieties. This pepper variety produces compact plants that average 18-24″ tall. This makes it a great option for container, raised bed, and in-ground gardens.
Yes to Yellow Pepper begins producing fruits 65 days from transplanting. Fruits are initially green and mature to a bright yellow color. Fruits are flattened and round with small flutes around the stem end. These peppers are sweet with thick walls, making them a great option for eating raw or stuffing.
Peppers are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Peppers do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. Peppers grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.
If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting peppers, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Peppers can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
