Care

Horizon Orange Bell Pepper Plant Care

Provide at least 8 hours of full sun daily. 10+ hours is better. 

Flower development will occur mid to late summer. Some flowers may be pinched to encourage a bushy plant. Flowers will eventually turn into peppers. 

Water regularly after planting or repotting, keeping soil moist but not wet until the plant is established. We suggest attempting to make sure your bell pepper plant gets about 1" of water every week during periods of growth.

Horizon Orange Bell Pepper Plants should not have their fruit harvested while it is still green. It's best to wait until the fruit transitions to its lovely orange color prior to harvesting. 

This plant, like all peppers, is an excellent companion for cucumber!

Plant 24" apart. 

Planting with tomatoes will repel many pests and attract beneficial insects to your tomato plants.

Do not allow prolonged exposure to temperatures below 50°F. Will die if exposed to frost. Often stunted by any temperatures below 60°F. Does best in temperatures above 65°F and below 95°F.
