Big Bertha PS Hybrid Pepper Seeds

Select Item


Giant yields, giant fruit from the grand dame of sweet bells

Days to Maturity: 72 from transplant

If you like your peppers big and bountiful, Big Bertha is the one for you. A long-time favorite of Park customers and one of our own most highly-recommended varieties, this giant-fruited bell has been improved to bear even greater yields on medium-tall plants. You simply won't believe these massive, 7-inch-long glossy green bells, thick-walled, firm, and utterly delicious raw or cooked.

The plants offer great coverage for the maturing fruit, and are vigorous all season, thanks to tolerance of tobamo Po virus. We have given Big Bertha our Park high-performer stamp of approval for both yield and flavor.

Start seeds indoors or, in climate with short growing seasons, outdoors at least one week after last frost. If starting indoors, allow 7 to 10 weeks for the seeds to mature into seedlings large enough to transplant safely. Set seedlings (or thin direct sown seedlings) 2 feet apart in full sun. If planting many seedlings, space rows about 3 feet apart. Fertilize when the blooms appear, and water well. Fruit is most nutritious if allowed to ripen on the plant.

Love these seeds

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have been buying this variety of green peppers from park seed for about 5 years. They are big and tasty. The plants are strong and bearing lots of peppers. So much so the I have stake them up on the branches break off. They continue producing until frost (zone 6). The seeds germinate 100%.
