Highly productive plants load up early with thick-walled, plump and juicy 3 to 4 inch mini peppers that ripen quickly to bright orange. Sweet and delicious for fast snacks and salads or grilling.
Vigorous Yummy Belle was bred in the Czech Republic by a fine family owned seed house that specializes in developing delicious peppers. The compact and productive plants load up early with sweet and crunchy, thick walled fruits that quickly ripen up bright orange for harvesting. You’ll have lots of plump and pretty 3 to 4 inch minis for fresh tasty snacks, to slice into salads, top pizza or enjoy in stir fries. These versatile little sweet peppers are real winners.
In early spring, start indoors about 2 months before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 50-55°F (10-13°C) range. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm 80-85°F (27-30°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant into 4 inch individual pots. Maintain at 70-75°F (21-24°C). Feed with half strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Plant out 2 to 2 1/2 feet apart into rich soil in full sun.
Don’t plant peppers outdoors until night temperatures stay securely above 55°F (13°C). Prepare soil with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots. Mulch plants to maintain even soil moisture. Stake or cage your pepper plants to support their heavy fruit set.
HARVEST AND USE
Pick the 3 to 4 inch peppers when fully colored up orange. Cut rather than pull them from plants. Enjoy them sliced up raw, sautéed, stir fried, grilled or piled on pizza.
There are many seeds suppliers from local and overseas, however you will never know who is the “best”. We aim to source quality seeds from over the world and offer the best varieties at the best timings from our worldwide Suppliers. All the seeds we provide are “safe“, we do not offer Genetic Modified (GM) seeds. All the seeds we import come with the Phytosanitary Certificate (to prove the seeds are safe and free from any kind of contaminations). Once the Seeds arrived we store them in vacuum jars stored in temperature controlled rooms, this is to prolong their life such that all seeds delivered to you are still in it’s most freshness condition.
We wish to promote Gardening to form a habit, this is good for us and our younger generations. Gardening improves our attention to tasks. It gives satisfactions as well when we see blooming flowers or cut the required quantity of herbs in the kitchen for the dinner. It would just take you as less as 10 to 15 minutes per day to acquire the satisfaction. It is amazing, and it’s indeed cost you very cheap to form the habit. Our mission is to generate this good habit for everyone.
We love cooking. At Yummy Seeds, we offer many varieties from the main ingredients in our lovely recipes. When the seeds grow into plant, the crops could be used instantly in your wok. You can trim any quantity you like. That’s the reason why we called ourselves Yummy Seeds (But be warned that our seeds are not edible).
We encourage container gardening (grow your flavorite plants in a container). In Hong Kong most of us are living in small to medium size apartments and do not have a garden. We know when we were young sunlight is a pre-requisite for plant undergoing the process of photosynthesis. Yummy Seeds tells you that some of the plants can still live in places without full sunlight. They can grow well in balcony or your kitchen. Less sun would only lead to slower grow rate for some varities but they can grow very healthy. You can find different varieties at Yummy Seeds according to your needs and planting locations.
Our missions in building Yummy Seeds are:
- help people to form a habit of gardening
- offer the best seeds to all home gardeners
- provide the safest seeds to ensure you will not be eating GM stuffs
We are in connections with various organizations for sponsoring free seeds for charity and educational purpose. If you are looking for similar sponsorship, send us an email to discuss.
In addition, we have launched Bhumi Organic in 2021. Bhumi is one of the best organic clothing brands on the market.
