Description

Redskin F1 are very dwarf plants ideal for containers on a patio. The plant produces numerous medium size fruits which are slightly pointed, of bright green colour turning to red.


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 to 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 underglass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on underglass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.


Harvest

Move containers outside to a patio one all risk of frost has passed. In autumn move back undercover to ripen any remaining fruits.
