Grafted Sweet Pepper Big Bertha

NEW! Grafted Sweet Pepper Big Bertha

At a whopping 7" long by 4" wide, this Bell Pepper is reported to be among the largest with some fruits weighing in at over 1 lb! 'Big Bertha' produces three- to four-lobed, elongated fruits with thick walls and crisp flesh. Excellent for stuffing, salads, or snacks high in Vitamin C. Matures dark green to bright, shiny red 72 days from transplant. This one's sure to win you a ribbon at the county fair.

Grafted vegetables should be planted at soil level so that the graft line, indicated by green tie tape, remains above ground.

The practice of grafting, used in orchards and vineyards for thousands of years, creates the best of two worlds: a vigorous rootstock is fused to the top part of another plant valued for its fruit or flowers. By marrying a vigorous, disease-resistant rootstock to flavorful varieties, this ancient horticultural technique makes heirloom vegetables both more productive and more resistant to soil-borne pests and diseases.

Our stocky seedlings are grown and shipped in 3" pots that are a full 4" deep, so the plants you receive have strong, well-developed root systems. For more information on growing and care, click Growing Guide.
