Capsicum's

Capsicum's (Pepper's) come in a good range of fruit colours when mature - red, orange, yellow, chocolate and even purple. This makes them an excellent ornamental vegetable to grow - even in mixed flower borders or in pots on the patio. Capsicum's are reliable croppers outside in warm, sunny summers.
  • Compact in habit, the plant produces heavy crops of rounded green peppers that mature to a rich orange. Once they start to flower and fruit they just seem to go on all summer long! These are perfect for just about everything - from using in salads, to stuffing, to grilling. Fruits measure around 4-5 cm diameter and have thick walls, giving them a wonderful 'crunch'.

    Growing to around 60 cm tall the plant has a compact habit, making them perfect for container growing.

    Growing Hint:

    Pepper Seeds germinate best at a temperature of over 18'+, if nothing else is in the propagator set it to 20'+. Sow seeds individual in cell trays of quality seed compost, cover lightly and place in the propagator. Water so that the compost is moist but not soggy. The seeds should germinate within 14 days at this temperature, once the seedlings have grown two true leaves, remove from the propagator to a warm, light, frost free location.
    The young seedlings will also benefit from a weak feed at this stage.
