nightshade family Capsicum annuum

Sigaretta di Bergamo Sweet peppers, Bell peppers

This variety is native to the region around Bergamo. Traditionally, the long, thin peppers (sigarettes) are pickled in vinegar. These go great with any italian food and, especially, pizza. But they also taste great fresh just before they turn all red. The bushy plant grows up to 60 cm high and displays its prolific fruits. It grows well in the open field.

Sow in early March into pots in a warm place. Transplant into the field from May 20 in the open field or even earlier in a cold frame or protected space at a distance of 40 ✕ 40 cm. Tie to stakes and keep free of frost. Keep soil moist by watering regularly. For early peppers you can sow early in a professional greenhouse. Harvest from early August until October.
