Capsicum King Crimson

Capsicum King Crimson is a new favourite for open pollinated bell peppers. Produces generous yields of large blocky peppers which are quick to ripen in the cooler climates. Has yielded double the harvest compared to other bell peppers I have grown by late March. Highly Recommended given the yields and early maturity.

Sow – Start on a heat mat or indoors in August, plant out after risk of frost and soils warmed (early to mid November in a cool climate). Can start earlier if planting in a hot house. Lay black plastic on ground and plant into an X cut-out if planting outside. They need consistent soil warmth in Tasmania.

Cool Climate: AUG– NOV (Heat mat)

Temperate: AUG – JAN

Sub – Tropical: JUL – APR

Tropical: ALL YEAR

Arid: AUG – JAN

Spacing – 50-70cm.

The name pepper was given by Europeans when Christopher Columbus brought the plant back to Europe. At that time, black pepper (peppercorns), from the unrelated plant Piper nigrum originating from India, was a highly prized condiment.

The name pepper was applied in Europe to all known spices with a hot and pungent taste and was therefore extended to genus Capsicum when it was introduced from the Americas.

Germination: Optimal Soil temperature is 24 to 30 C (around 10 to 20 days to germination, longer at lower temps)
