The dacha season is over and it's time to sum up the first results. The year was "pepper" because the harvest of peppers was excellent. Old, well-known varieties showed themselves well. But we are interested to know about new ones. Most of all dacha owners are interested in large-fruited varieties with thick walls, sweet and juicy. We present cube-shaped, elongated-cube-shaped peppers and varieties of peppers like Rotunda or Gogoshary.
We recommend a new sweet bell pepper - & nbsp; White Bull. The variety is distinguished by the friendly yields in the shortest possible time. Cubic fruits of this variety reach a weight of 220-250 grams and the main yield (8-10 fruits) is concentrated on the lower tiers. While the late-ripening, cubic varieties (e.g., pepper Spanish Bull) were getting colored, this variety was already ready for harvesting.
The record of large-fruitedness was broken by sweet pepper Kakadu Yellow. Its elongated cuboid fruits (sortotype Lamuyo) reached the weight of 390 gr, and the average weight was 300-350 gr. To date, it is the largest-fruited variety. Slightly smaller in weight peppers Kakadu orange , but the same flavorful, with juicy thick walls.
By the way! It is possible to increase the yield of peppers by using some agricultural techniques such as removing the inflorescence ("crown") at the first fork of the stem. Such pruning promotes better fruit setting and early ripening. This method is often used by agronomists to grow tall pepper varieties in greenhouses. This variety combines early maturity with excellent fast setting, a fairly large fruit (up to 250 g) and excellent pepper flavor. And it is not surprising - orange-fruited peppers are considered by many cooks the most delicious.
Cubic peppers Milky Way weighing 200-250 g, also have excellent taste qualities. The fruit wall is firm, with a slight crunch, 6-7 mm thick, juicy. The color of immature fruits is yellowish-white, ripe - yellow, glossy. The peppers are of universal use: as fresh produce and for home cooking.
Peppers Fon Baron red, Fon Baron yellow and Fon Baron orange are tested. These are Rotunda peppers, with heavy, flat-round ribbed fruits, resembling the shape of small pumpkins. The average weight of the fruit was 150-170 g, and wall thickness with regular watering and feeding reached 9-10 mm, which is close to the maximum for sweet peppers.
All those who like to experiment on their plot with unusual varieties of peppers, we recommend growing all three varieties Phone Baron - red, yellow and orange.
