If you like your peppers big and bountiful, the Big Bertha bell pepper is the one for you! Because they contain 0 SHUs, they will make a poor choice for a spicy hot sauce, but they are an excellent option for many culinary uses!

The Big Bertha pepper plant produces 7- to 12-inch, thick-walled peppers that ripen from green to red. These pepper plants are large with heavy stems that produce huge peppers, so make sure to support them with stakes. This will especially be helpful to do during harsh winds or rain. This pepper will be one of the largest elongated peppers you’ll grow, which is perfect for making giant stuffed peppers. No, our mouths aren’t watering or anything…

The Big Bertha sweet peppers are crisp, crunchy, and extremely flavorful, and they don’t produce many seeds, making them excellent for slicing. Use Big Bertha green peppers to eat raw, as tasty stuffed peppers, to use on salads and sandwiches, or to cook and roast.

They are growing at the moment too early to tell how the fruit will be.

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
