Description

Sakura sweet pepper
Capsicum annuum

Of Eastern European origin, this is an early maturing sweet pepper worth trying in short season areas. The fruit are shaped like elongated cones and measure about 5 x 11.5 cm. They have a thick, juicy flesh and change from yellowish green to red as they mature.

The medium-sized plants can be grown either in the ground or pots 7.5 to 10 litres in size. Either way, they need support, especially as the fruit get bigger.
