Description – A deliciously sweet, thick-skinned blocky sweet pepper variety. Plants produce a prolific number of green fruits, turning a rich orange whether grown indoors or out. These attractive peppers will add colour and taste to hot or cold dishes, eaten cooked or raw.
Sowing – Place seed on the surface of a free-draining damp seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-14 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots.
Growing – Plant out into growbags or 20cm (8in) pots in the greenhouse. Provide a night temperature of 16-24°C (60-75°F) and around 24°C (75°F) in daytime, for good fruit setting. Ensure compost is evenly moist as flowers form. Feed with tomato fertiliser as blossoms open and water well. Pick fruits as soon as ripe to ensure continued cropping.
Harvest – March to April
