As you know, fresh herbs are a great way to add extra flavor, color and aroma to your cooking. But one huge downside is that fresh herbs don’t last very long. If you are only cooking a few times a week, then chances are most of your herbs are probably going to go bad...
Bell Pepper Seeds
Well named, Cupid Bell Peppers will make you fall in love with peppers. Seriously though, these babies are sweet, crisp, crunchy, and cute and their nickname (as if they need one) is snacking peppers. Grow these peppers in well-drained fertile soil and pick them promptly when they reach maturity and are about 2”.

|Hydro / Soil|
Grows well in hydroponics (with carefully managed nutrients) or in soil – especially in self-watering planters.
|Container / Indoors|
Plant 1 site in an 8" (1 gal) container. In larger containers, space sites 6" apart. For each site plant 2 seeds 1/4" deep.
|Outdoor / Inground|
Plant 1 site per square foot. For each site, plant 2 seeds 1/4" deep. Thin to one plant per site once seedlings are ~1in tall.
These plants range from 1-3 feet in height and require about 18” of space in between seedlings.
|Taste & Nutritional Value|
Sweet, crisp and crunchy. They contain vitamins C, A, E, and B6 and have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Cupid Bell Peppers were introduced in 2015 and were so delicious that they were partially responsible for the National Garden Bureau to name 2015 the “Year of the Sweet Pepper.”
