nightshade family Capsicum annuum

Rosso d'Asti Sweet peppers, Bell peppers

This large block-shaped red pepper is from the Piedmont region. The thick-walled fruits are juicy and very aromatic. In mild area climates they mature in the open field, but covering in a hot house brings early and greater yield potential. This reputable variety livens up the display at the organic produce stand at weekly markets.

Sow in early March into pots in a warm place. Transplant into the field from May 20th at a distance of 60 ✕ 60 cm on each side. Tie up to sturdy stakes. Keep frost free at all times. For commercial earlier harvests, advance the seeding time and use greenhouses to beware of frosts.
