Pepper Sweet Mini Bell F1
Pepper Sweet Mini Bell Mixed F1 Hybrid. The latest breeding development in mini sweet peppers, all the way from the USA! This three colour mix of orange red and chocolate, just gets better and better. Each plant produces small but stocky, blocky fruits. Ideal for UK greenhouse and patio growing. What’s more, the bigger the pot you give them, the bigger they get and the heavier they crop. For easy maintenance we recommend planting in a 2 litre pot to keep plants at around 1m (3′) high. Well branched plants produce high numbers of deliciously sweet mini peppers for snacking, lunchboxes, salads and stir fries.
Height: 90cm (36″). Spread 35cm (14″).
March – April
July – October
How to sow
Sow sweet pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) until after germination, which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3″) pots of compost and grow on in cooler conditions. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, moist, well drained soil. Peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. When growing peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space sweet pepper plants at a distance of 45cm (18″) apart.
