The sweet bell pepper was grown as early as 1681 by enslaved Africans in Panama. It was introduced to North America most likely from the West Indies by the early 1700s. Thomas Jefferson recorded "Bull nose" Capsicum, which likely resembled the heavily lobed pepper we know today, in his 1812 garden calendar. Bull Nose Pepper is a productive variety that bears 3-4" fruits with excellent flavor.

Sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost date, transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then transplant outdoors 2-4 weeks after last frost. Pepper plants prefer warm soils for germination and growth. Approximately 35-40 seeds per packet.
