Purple Beauty Sweet Pepper - the Royal Bell Pepper
An absolutely stunning, compact sweet bell pepper plant, perfect for containers and small spaces, guaranteed to spark conversations in the garden and around the dinner table. The color catches your eye, but the flavor will capture your taste buds!
Compact, highly productive plants are loaded with leaves that shade and protect the ripening sweet peppers. Purple Beauty starts producing relatively early, often is the most productive pepper in the home garden, and continues producing in hot weather after other peppers suffer blossom drop.
Produces surprising numbers of thick-walled meaty 3-4 lobed purple fruits, with gardeners reporting up to 6 to 8 peppers ripening at the same time. The extremely dark purple skin is nearly black, contrasting with the vibrant green flesh having a tender-crisp texture with a mild sweet flavor. Purple Beauty ripens from green into purple stripes that widen to cover the whole fruit. It holds the purple stage well before ripening to a deep purple-red. The flavor becomes deeper and richer as it ripens, going from a mild flavor at the early purple stage to a thick-walled, rich and sweet pepper you will be proud to show off in your favorite dishes.
This unique beauty was developed through de-hybridization of the hybrid Purple Belle pepper through traditional plant breeding to make it an open-pollinated variety.
Peppers are used fresh, dried, and cooked. Peppers contain vitamins A and C.

Purple Beauty Sweet Pepper Germination
The Purple Beauty Sweet Pepper seeds I ordered from Terroir Seeds arrived on time and were packaged well. I planted them right away in my Aerogarden and within four days had the biggest, healthiest looking pepper plant sprout I've ever seen! I'm so excited to begin growing sweet peppers in my indoor garden. Will plant some next season for the outdoor garden!
