Pepper (Sweet) Demetra F1
Trouble free, high yielding variety, producing sweet tasting long 180g triangular shaped fruits ripening from green to red.
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.
