Bred by experts at the USDA and introduced in 1963, this bell pepper variety has been selected for its heavy yields and strong plant structures to support a lot of large peppers! The Emerald Giant is an improved pepper that you will enjoy growing in the comfort of your garden.

This pepper is a huge, blocky pod with thick flesh that grows to around 4 to 5 inches long. The pepper will glisten to a beautiful emerald green color before ripening to a bright red, and it’ll deliver sweetness and a crispy texture as it matures. The prolific Emerald Giant pepper plant is vigorous, disease-resistant, and an excellent choice to grow in warmer areas.

The giant green pepper is a favorite among chefs and home gardeners to cook for many culinary uses. Use the delicious Emerald Giant pepper in salads, roasted, stuffed, grilled, baked, or to eat as fresh! Delivering in flavor, texture, and variety, this is a must-have sweet pepper to have on your growing list!

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.
