Producing 4" fruit with thick, sweet flesh, these bell pepper seeds make it easy to grow a culinary staple in your own backyard. Because pepper plants prefer warm weather, sweet bell pepper seeds should be started indoors 8 to 10 weeks before the last frost date in your USDA hardiness zone. After transplanting the bell pepper seedlings into the garden, the bell pepper plants will first produce white flowers before setting the fruit.
