There is a new standard for excellence in bell peppers, and its name is Majestic Red! This splendid all-around superior performer will wow you with big yields of extra-large, extra-heavy fruit that turns such a rich, bright shade of red that it almost looks shellacked! Appearing on disease-resistant, widely adapted plants, Majestic Red is a great value as well as a delectable treat.
These fruits are very blocky, with smooth skin that turns from rich green to bright red (though it can be picked green if desired). They feel heavy for their size, because they are packed with extra-thick walls of juicy, sweet, crunchy flavor.
And Majestic Red looks its best because this vigorous plant offers great foliage cover for the fruit, reducing the chance of scorch even in hot, punishing climates. The harvest continues all season, thanks to superior resistance to tobacco mosaic virus and races 0-3, 5, 7, and 8 of bacterial leaf spot. It also stands up well to root rot. You can’t find an easier pepper to grow, because Majestic Red just isn’t troubled by many of the problems that other varieties have!
Healthier fruit means bigger yields, and you will be amazed at the productivity of Majestic Red, even late in the season. Prepare to share the bounty with others, or to can, dry, and freeze the excess. You are about to grow LOTS of peppers! 80 days. Photo courtesy of Park Seed.
