MORE ABOUT CORBACI PEPPER:
(Capsicum annuum) Turkish variety produces loads of 8" long sweet peppers. Maturing from light green to yellow to red-orange, peppers are perfect for fresh eating or frying. One of the finest flavored sweet peppers out there. Sweet. 70 days to harvest. 25 seeds/pkt.
CULTURE: Peppers perform best in well-drained soil that contains plenty of organic matter and adequate phosphorous and calcium. Mulching plants with poly, paper, or natural materials will ensure consistent moisture throughout the root zone.
SOWING: For earliest harvest, start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Sow seeds 1/4" deep in well moistened, sterile seed-starting mix. The ideal temperature for pepper seed germination is 85 degrees. For best results, place a growers heat mat beneath trays until germination has occurred. Under ideal conditions, germination should occur in 10-14 days.
TRANSPLANTING: After danger of frost has passed, set transplants 18-24" apart in rows 24-36" apart. Ensure that plants receive 1-2" of water per week. Avoid over-application of nitrogen as this can cause vegetative growth at the expense of fruit set.
INSECT PESTS: Biological controls such as Bacillus thuringiensis can be effective in controlling climbing cutworms. Aphids, flea beetles, and other hard-shelled insects can be controlled with a simple homemade insecticidal soap solution.
DISEASES AND PROBLEMS: To prevent common pepper diseases like Phytopthora and bacterial spot, avoid watering plants at night or on cool, cloudy days. Excess nitrogen and/or insufficient phosphorous can cause pepper plants to become bushy and produce few blossoms.
HARVEST AND STORAGE: Peppers can be harvested at any time, but should be picked before they become soft or overly mature. Harvesting regularly will encourage further fruit set. Peppers can be stored in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days.
SAVING SEEDS: Select disease-free plants that are true-to-type. Pepper plants are prone to cross pollination by bees, so precautions should be taken to prevent pollination by insects. Covering plants with mosquito netting is an effective method to protect against pollen contamination.
I have purchased 3 different pepper seeds. I did not have prior experience growing peppers. Since I did not know how many of them would sprout, I planted all seeds in pots. Amazingly they all sprouted. I shared them with 4 more friends:) I am very excited and patiently waiting for the peppers to grow.
the seeds were working .we were able to get sprouts out of it.
Every seed I planted has sprouted (the seedlings are in my indoor greenhouse and are growing beautifully). I'm eager to transplant then eventually harvest!
Very nice and tasty pepper , took little bit long to produce but after that very happy.
