Capsicum Block Sweet

← Part of Quick Start Vegetable and Herb Seedlings

Pohlmans Capsicum Sweet produces sweet bell peppers weighing up to 100g, that can be picked green, however, they are at their sweetest when they turn red.  Capsicum contains lycopene, which lowers the risk of some cancers, and the red capsicums are extremely high in Vitamin C.  Use in salads, stir fries, stews and for stuffing.  Plant your capsicum along with cucumber, tomato and lettuce, to create the basics of your salad.

Care: These tasty vegetables prefer well drained soils and should be fed regularly during the growing season.  Do not over fertilise in the early stages, as this will encourage leaf growth at the expense of your fruit.
