Description

This so called 'red-horn pepper' is large, sweet and prolific and for all these reasons now the only sweet red pepper I grow. For most, the balance between the TLC required and the amount they produce is not in the pepper's favour, but that's not so with this productive and tasty kind.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Stake plants and tie in as they grow. Tips may be pinched out at 20cm to promote branching but this will delay cropping. Keep well watered and feed regularly with a tomato feed once fruits start to form.
