78 days. Large, blocky bells have thick sweet flesh. Dark green fruit turn red when ripe. Vigorous plants give heavy yields. A good variety for the south. Developed in 1963.

Review:

These plants required little to no maintenance once they were mature enough to plant outdoors. They thrived despite it being a dry, cool summer. They are hearty, thick peppers with a burst of flavor. Excellent seed!

Review:

This is the first time I tried this bell pepper. We had drought, and 90-100 degree days, for about 3 out of 4 weeks, so the plants did not grow very well, and we got few peppers. The tallest plant is a little over 2 ft tall... maybe 1 ft width top/crown. The peppers we got were about 3" x 3", on avg... with 1 or 2 at maybe 3.25 inches. They were good, the few peppers we got. I would give this pepper a "B" grade. There are ell peppers I am growing, perhaps 1 or 2 others, that I like the taste better... but those plants produced even fewer bell peppers than Emerald Giant... iirc... Maybe if we get more of a "normal" Summer weather pattern next year... the plants will grow taller, and we will see a tons of peppers, instead of just a few? Overall... one of the better bell peppers I have grown.. well above average.

Review:

We planted 20 of these in 2010, and the plants were productive and hardy - they were strong enough to not have to be staked like our other pepper varieties, yet were 3' by August. The fruit was large and tasty. We used them for fire-roasted peppers (to cook with, or freeze for later) and for eating fresh. Do take care to arrange the young fruit when they are small so they can grow freely. The first fruit grew near the "joints" and the narrow-branching plant would strangle peppers without help.

Review:

I planted these for 2010 and am in the middle of harvesting the abundant crop of thick large peppers. The plants are heavily leaved and very sturdy little "trees". I've already cooked and canned with these and they have a wonderful green pepper flavor. I plan to freeze the excesses for the long winter months. Will plant again next year. I did use a mild fertilizer once a week as peppers are heavy feeders.

Review:

An absolutely beautiful, vibrant Emerald Green pepper plant! Very hardy, robust, and a lot of blooms. Fruit Lives up to the name "Giant". Will add this to my garden inventory every year!P.S. Bottom water with 2 Tbsps. diluted Hydrogen Peroxide + 1 Tbsp Epsom salts per gallon of warm water, from germination until hardening off for plant out! They love it!
