F1. A striped, elongated bell-shaped pepper that starts out green with white stripes, then matures to a full red with a whole range of colors in between! That gorgeous range, plus its beautiful variegated leaves, makes it a standout in the garden, and its sweet, mild taste makes it a standout in the kitchen. Candy Cane is best for fresh eating and it’s perfect for edible ornamental plantings. The longer you leave it on the plant, the sweeter it will become! These plants can grow from 18-24″. 40-45 days to maturity for green striped; 60-65 days to maturity for ripe red. Photo courtesy of Ball Seed.
Care: Full sun. 70 days. Set plants 12-18” apart in rows 24-30” apart. Keep soil uniformly moist (not waterlogged)
