Yellow Bell pepper Seeds:
Yellow bell peppers are a type of sweet pepper that is a cultivar of the bell pepper species Capsicum annuum. Like other bell peppers, they have a blocky shape with three or four lobes and a thick, crunchy flesh. They are usually harvested when they are fully ripe, which is why they have a bright yellow color.
How does the yellow bell pepper taste?
Yellow bell peppers have a sweet, mild flavor that is slightly fruity and less bitter than green bell peppers. Compared to other colors of bell peppers, the yellow variety is generally considered to be sweeter and less tangy. This is due to the fact that yellow bell peppers have more time to ripen on the vine than green bell peppers, which can make them more flavorful and less bitter.
When eaten raw, yellow bell peppers have a crunchy texture and a juicy, sweet flavor. When cooked, their sweetness is intensified and they become tender and slightly caramelized. Their mild flavor and sweet taste make them a great addition to a variety of dishes, including salads, sandwiches, stir-fries, and soups. They can also be roasted, grilled, or sautéed to add a sweet, smoky flavor to dishes.
These peppers are a great option for those who want to add sweetness and a mild pepper flavor to their meals without adding too much heat or bitterness.
Capsicum annuum peppers grow best in well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. They also prefer a sunny location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.
Peppers should be started from seeds indoors, 6 to 12 weeks before the last frost date. Once the seedlings are 4 to 6 inches tall, they can be transplanted into the garden. Make sure to space the plants at minimum 12-18 inches apart, with 18″ being ideal to allow for good air circulation.
Capsicum annuum peppers need regular watering, especially during hot, dry weather. Water deeply once a week or more often if the soil is dry.
Capsicum annuum peppers benefit from regular applications of fertilizer throughout the growing season. Use a balanced fertilizer with a ratio of 10-10-10 or 5-10-10 and apply it every 2 to 3 weeks.
