75 days. Purple peppers are always a favorite, as they are so colorful. This variety produces loads of beautiful bells on compact, bushy plants. Crisp texture and mild, sweet flavor makes this one popular with everyone. I even believe Peter Piper picked a peck of these purple peppers and I don't blame him.

Review:

I grew three of these peppers in one 1'x2' long pot. They all set fruit. I even had one with seven peppers on it simultaneously. I harvested the first pepper too early; it was still purple and the walls were thin. The flavor was very mild, barely noticeable, in fact. The rest weren't harvested until they turned red. I was well pleased with them. I've never grown peppers before but these were quite easy. I've put the pot under my grow lights in my plant room to see if the final peppers will ripen. We had the warmest summer I can remember this year so I'm not sure if I would have had as good a result in an average season. I think I'll try growing some again next year to find out.

Review:

As a self-reliance-minded gardener, I'm always looking for crops that can be grown quickly without much "babysitting"... my review title says it all! I also grow King of the North red bells, and this is definitely the Queen of the North in my humble opinion. I did not start my plants from seed, but bought them locally. Buy the time I had the garden ready, these already had flowers!!! Given an early start, these things outpace every other bell I've grown (aside from Kings, with which they're on par). They also start purple and stay purple... if you want t a green bell, grow a red and pick it early. Within a week or two of planting, I could already see beautiful purple bells forming on every plant.. they're getting bigger every day. Barely watered, only occasional weeding, if they continue to produce through the season as they are now, these will be right next to my Kings, and my second in alternation for sweet pepper seed saving.

Review:

I've grown these peppers several times, and they are a favorite! The plants are compact, healthy, and loaded with leaves to protect the peppers from sun as they mature. And you will get a great bumper crop of these little beauties, as Purple Beauty is a heavy yielding variety. One thing I have discovered which the catalog descriptions never mention, is that you really wouldn't harvest and eat them in the purple stage, because they aren't really mature until they fully ripen to red. In the purple stage, I have tried to slice them into salads, and they are pretty thin and bland at that point. Just wait a few more weeks until the peppers have a chance to turn red, and you will be rewarded with thick-walled, sweet peppers that you will be proud to show off in your favorite dishes!
