Pimento Sheepnose Pepper Seeds
This beautiful cheese-type sweet pepper ripens from green to fire-engine red. One of the best pimento peppers to grow at home. This ribbed pepper is quite stunning in the garden or on your plate. Sheepnose Pimento Pepper is an Ohio heirloom, able to handle northern climates. Pimentos are great for stuffing, roasting, snacking, the classic cheese spread, and for stuffing olives.
Thick-walled, crisp, and juicy peppers are 3-4” wide by 2-3” wide with thick stems. Plants are 24” tall and easy to grow.
Capsicum annuum (70 days) Heirloom, Open-pollinated

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light, and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest peppers when they are red.
