The small snacking pepper matures to a deep ruby red and makes a colorful addition to any dish. The plants have good cover and an excellent disease package. 

Orange Delite shrugs off the summer heat, yielding loads of large, sweet, vivid orange snack peppers. Orange Delite has strong, vigorous plants with a good early setting that continues throughout the season. The crunchy, flavorful peppers are a perfect size and feature smooth, glossy fruits. The small snacking pepper matures to a striking bright orange and makes a colorful addition to any dish. The plants have good cover and an excellent disease package. 

Peppers are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Peppers do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. Peppers grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting peppers, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Peppers can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
