SKU: V-191

Sale price$2.49



Capsicum Big Red produces large, 3 to 4 lobed blocky bells that weigh about 150-180g and are 12-15cm long and 12cm wide. Its attractive fruits mature to a deep, dark red and have thick-walled, very sweet flesh. This is an excellent variety for fresh markets and home gardens. The plants are sturdy, grow to about 60cm and take 75 days to mature. 

Sow & Care Instructions 

Sow seeds indoors in seed flats - Start 8-10 weeks before the last frost date in your area, 5-6mm deep with soil temperatures 21-26 ºC – you may need to use a bottom heat pad or electric propagator. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Choose a well-drained sunny position and transplant 45cm apart when the danger of frost has passed and when soil is 20 degrees. 

Harvest using a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size; this helps accelerate the growth of the other capsicums on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to colour and sweeten up. 

Tips: Plant in fertile, well-composted soil, mulch, and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the southern states, including Sydney (applicable for Australia). Side dress when flowers begin to form. It is a great companion plant for basil. Warmth is essential for a good fruit set. Pick fruit regularly to prolong cropping. 

A propagation note will be supplied with the seed packet for your convenience.

Good product

Seeds germinate well and we had plenty of tomatoes, capsicum and eggplant. Even neighbours are also happy to receive fresh veggies.
