How to Grow Lilac Bell Pepper:

  • Sowing: Start Lilac Bell pepper seeds internally about 8 weeks before the last expected spring frost. Sow seeds 1/4″ deep using peat pots for planting. Before germination, the soil temperature should be 80-85 degrees F. Provide sunlight for 12-16 hours a day and harden the seedlings for several hours a day. With an outside temperature of 60-65 degrees F during the day and at least 50 degrees F at night, transplant the seеdlings 12-16″ apart. Peppеrs also grow well in containers or raised beds.
    • Plant Spacing: 20-24″.
  • Growing of Lilac Bell Pepper: The soil must be uniformly moist for a successful and fertile crop, free from weeds. Mulching may be needed. Provide shade to prevent the plants from withering in the scorching sun and heat. Lilac Bell pepper seeds for planting adapt to many soil types and are resistant to the tobacco mosaic virus.
    • Soil Requirements for Lilac Bell Pepper: fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil.
    • Lilac Bell Pepper Days to Germination for 7-14 days.
    • Light Preference of Lilac Bell Pepper: Full Sun.
    • How and When to Harvest Lilac Bell Pepper: Harvest sweet peppers as desired and necessary. When the pepper turns purple and hangs on the bush for longer, the sweeter it tastes. Full ripening of the pepper stops further growth, and the collection of green peppers lengthens the growing season. It wоuld be best if you used a sharp knife or scissors to pick the peppers.
    • Lilac Bell Pepper Seeds Days to Maturity: up to 70 days
  • Lilac Bell Pepper's Seed Saving: Peppers tend to cross-pollinate with other peppers, so isolate them to maintain genetic purity. Cut ripe peppers in half and remove seeds. Dry the seeds for two weeks—store seeds in a cool, dry place for up to two years.
