Orange Bell Pepper thrives in the heat
By Dave Harrison
June 2015 – De Ruiter has some new bell pepper introductions in the orange segment, including ‘DR0719PB.’
This variety offers consistently large fruit throughout the entire season, even in hot summer conditions, and an extended shelf life. In addition, it is versatile in terms of shape, making it ideal for specialty packaging markets. During hot summers it becomes really difficult for growers to keep the produce in good shape and DR0713PB is a great option for growers facing this challenge.
