MORE ABOUT DOLMALIK PEPPERS:

(Capsicum annuum) While we often hear from gardeners who are excited to find a particular heirloom of their past, we've never had anyone literally scream with joy—which is exactly what happened when we told one customer that we would be introducing the famous Turkish heirloom, "Dolmalik," this year.  After trying it ourselves, we can see what all the excitement was about.  Plants produce huge yields of 2" wide by 4" long, lobed peppers that ripen from green to red as they mature.  Delicious peppers have a unique sweet flavor with a bit of spiciness.  We're told that Dolmalik peppers are traditionally dried and ground into powder for seasoning meat, but may also be roasted, which is reported to bring out their sweet, smoky flavor.  However they're prepared, we're certain that Dolmalik will become a staple in our garden from now on.  Mild to medium heat depending on the growing conditions. 80-85 days from transplant.  25 seeds per packet. 

GROWING PEPPERS FROM SEED:

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.
