Cornissimo F1 Red

Cornissimo F1 Red


Sweet Pepper - Bull's Horn
Capsicum annuum
Extra-large Corno-shaped fruit that ripens from green to red, with outstanding thick walls, rich flavour and more sweetness than most large-fruited peppers. Great on the grill or stuffed and baked in the oven. To produce seedless fruit, grow in isolation from other non-seedless pepper varieties. If not isolated, it will produce larger, great-tasting fruits with just a few seeds. Best grown in-ground with the support of stakes or a cage.
15-18 x 6
CULTURAL PRACTICES: Start the seedlings indoors in hot beds or greenhouses. Plant them in pots when the seedlings have two pairs of true leaves. Do not plant out until all risk of frost has passed and nights are warm (over 12-13⁰ C) or the flowers will drop. SOIL: Moderately deep, fertile, well-drained soil with medium nitrogen levels. SPACING: Sow approximately 30-45 cm apart in rows 60 cm apart. GROWING TIPS: Stake for the cultivars over 60 cm tall. Plant in a sunny location and water them regularly. Apply a balanced fertilizer once a month. HARVESTING: Peppers are best harvested when green; others may be left to turn red or yellow. Cut the stalk about 2.5 cm from the fruit. Once picked, keep the fruit in a cool area.
