Description
A superb variety for outdoor cultivation, Pepper 'Bontempi' is robust with good resistance to pepper mosaic virus. With plenty of F1 vigour, this productive variety produces good yields of sweet peppers throughout the summer. The fruits are green, ripening to scarlet red with a mild, sweet, juicy flavour. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Reap the benefits of grafted vegetables! Top fruiting varieties are grafted onto more vigorous rootstocks to produce the best possible crops. These vigorous plants produce a huge increase in yields over a longer cropping season, with better tolerance to pests and diseases.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Peppers may be grown undercover in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors in a sheltered position in full sun. Pot up young plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions. When plants are well grown transplant them into grow bags and containers, or plant them in well prepared beds of fertile, well drained soil. When growing sweet peppers outdoors, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting them. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20") apart.
More Info
Feed and water pepper plants regularly throughout the growing season to prevent the flower buds from dropping. Taller varieties of sweet peppers may require staking. Provide a thick mulch of organic matter around the base of the plants to help conserve moisture and reduce weed growth. In greenhouses, maintain high humidity by damping down paths daily. Peppers can be harvested while still green, or left on the plant to ripen to red or yellow. Harvest peppers by cutting them from the plant by with secateurs. Peppers grown outdoors must be harvested before the first frosts.
