Description

Fill your garden with a healthy snack for lunchtime and beyond. These sweet orange snacking peppers serve both loads of crunch and lots of beta-carotene and vitamin C. They’re ideal for eating straight off the plant, chopped fresh in salads, or sliced thin for stir-fries. Plants tend to give high yields, so consider staking with a tomato cage when planting in a windy location, to keep stems from breaking. Lunchbox Sweet Snacking Pepper plants work beautifully in containers; plant one per 18-inch pot. Underplant with dwarf marigolds for a pretty combination. Equal amounts of our red, yellow, and orange Lunchbox snack peppers have been combined in this mix. These beautiful, mini-sized peppers are remarkably sweet and flavorful. They are delicious sautéed, as an addition to salads and, of course, perfect for a healthy snack. All three varieties have tall strong plants that yield well for snack-type peppers. Sell the mixed colors loose or in clamshells. NOTE: Lunchbox Red is slightly smaller than the rest of the series.
