Description

D’Asti Giallo are a gorgeous golden yellow square shaped pepper with very thick flesh. They are medium early maturity with sweet mild flavour.


As easy to grow as tomatoes and requiring much of the same treatment. Peppers can be grown outside, so long as they are in a sheltered sunny area, but best results are usually obtained when they are grown in a polytunnel or a glasshouse. Peppers are delicious when used raw in salads but are also very tasty when cooked. They can be stuffed, roasted or added to sauces.


 


WHEN TO SOW


February and April.


Where to Sow


Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21°C until seeds germinate.


What to do next


Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on under glass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on under glass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.

HANDY TIP


To help support the weight of the crop it is best to tie plants to some canes as they grow.
