Description

Pepper Sweet Poupila will grow upright fruits that go from light yellow to red. Stunning in pots on the windowsill or on the patio as an edible ornament. These are easy plants to grow and Pepper Sweet Poupila is probably one of the easiest.

Peppers can be grown outside, so long as they are in a sheltered sunny area, but best results are usually obtained when they are grown in a polytunnel or a glasshouse. Peppers are delicious when used raw in salads but are also very tasty when cooked. They can be stuffed, roasted or added to sauces.

Peppers sown under glass can be pricked out into individual pots or module trays and grown on until they are ready to harden off and plant out into the vegetable patch.

Nutritional values: A good source of Vitamin C and beta carotene.

Pack size: Approximately 20 Seeds

Cultivation Instructions:

Sowing Indoors: Seeds can be sown from February to end of May. Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21C  until  seeds germinate. Peppers sown under glass can be pricked out into individual pots or module trays and grown on until they are ready to harden off and plant out into the vegetable patch.

Prick out seedings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on under glass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into grow bags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on under glass.  Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.

Sow/Plant outdoors: Seeds can be sown outside in the very sheltered, warmer parts of the garden although they do perform better under glass. If sowing outside consider using containers that can be moved indoors when the weather gets colder.

Handy Tips:

Move containers outside to a patio once all risk of frost has passed. In autumn move back undercover to ripen any remaining fruits

Grow peppers with lettuce or other indoor crops. Keep protected from slugs and snails using such things as slug tape.

Water regularly and spray the foliage to keep plants cool and encourage fruit to set.

Soil type: Indoor growing compost or well cultivated light free draining soils that are humus rich.

Aspect: Very sunny areas of the garden in containers or in greenhouses.

Position: Greenhouse or outdoors in warmer temperatures. Can be grown in tubs and containers.

Harvest: Late July to October.
