King of the North is an easy to grow, low-maintenance sweet red pepper that is ideal for stuffing. It's known for producing good sized peppers in short, cool seasons and strong plants produce high yields.
The first peppers will begin to set 60-70 days after planting seedlings. Pods will change in colour from green to red as they ripen. Wait until the fruits are about 7-10 cm before cutting them from the stem. Picking smaller peppers early in the season often provides a longer, more prolific harvest.
Sow seeds indoors in spring or directly in summer, 6-10 mm deep and 30-45 cm apart. Germination takes 10-28 days. Transplant seedlings when they have their first pair of true leaves and are 5 cm tall
King of the North is a heavy feeder and needs a lot of nutrients. Rotate with other vegetable groups like light feeders(salads), root crops or N-fixers(beans and peas).
