Description: This sweet red Italian heirloom is one of our all round favourites for fresh eating. It is a medium sized, tapered pepper always producing a huge crop over a long period which taste really sweet and full of flavour. Not as large or blocky as sweet bell peppers but far more prolific and way more flavour.
Planting Instructions: Plant indoors in trays in early Spring. Needs even temperature of 18 degrees C to germinate. Prick out when second leaves appear to 2.5 cm diagonal spacing. Transplant after danger of frost, under cloches if necessary at 30 cm diagonal spacing.
