Did you know that the Sweet Crimson Pepper was the first ever bell pepper variety ever offered at Pepper Joe's? Yep! This large sweet pepper is so good and easy to grow, even hot pepper lovers can't deny falling in love with this variety!

The Sweet Crimson pepper plant grows up to 2-1/2 ft. tall, producing long 7" bright red peppers that look nothing like bell peppers! In fact, they look closer to a banana pepper in shape! They are incredibly fleshy with a smooth texture, and the peppers will ripen from green to their signature crimson color when they're ready to be harvested.

It's perfect for frying or roasting. Try stuffing it with ground beef, ground turkey, or wild rice because it'll taste fabulous. You can eat this as a green bell pepper or wait a little longer for a red bell pepper. Either way, it is one sweet pepper with amazing sweet flavors.

We offer many more sweet-tasting peppers over at our Sweet Pepper Seed Collection! Don't want seeds? Try planting our Sweet Pepper Plants instead!

Sweet Crimson Pepper Seeds

I plan to purchase these for this year. Two things: putting these into a hydroponic system with water heated to 87 F will almost certainly make for good germination. Also, and I won’t know until harvest, these should make for a sweet powder that I hope to use as sweet paprika. We’ll see.

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.
