Pepper (Sweet) Mavras F1
Yet another colour choice. Mavras produces fruits with a finish a deep red but can be picked earlier when deep purple. They are very vigorous and early to fruit. This variety can be grown outside but only in a sheltered sunny position but the best results are obtained in polytunnels or a glasshouse.
As easy to grow as tomatoes and requiring much of the same treatment. Peppers can be grown outside, so long as they are in a sheltered sunny area, but best results are usually obtained when they are grown in a polytunnel or a glasshouse. Peppers are delicious when used raw in salads but are also very tasty when cooked. They can be stuffed, roasted or added to sauces.

When to sow
When to Sow Mavras F1 Pepper Seeds
February to April
Where to Sow
Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21°C until seeds germinate.
What to do next
Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on underglass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on underglass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.
Late July to October
To help support the weight of the crop it is best to tie plants to some canes as they grow. Water regularly and spray the foliage to keep plants cool and encourage fruits to set.
A good source of Vitamin C and beta carotene.
