Momentum* F1 Hybrid Sweet Pepper

OUTSTANDING QUALITIES:

  • IDEAL FOR OPEN FIELD PRODUCTION
  • BRIGHT RED, BLOCKY FRUIT
  • EXCELLENT YIELD POTENTIAL
  • RESISTANCE AGAINST BACTERIAL LEAF SPOT, CUCUMBER MOSAIC VIRUS AND PHYTOPHTHORA

Momentum* is a widely adapted, hybrid blocky pepper for production in the open field. Momentum* yields fruit of outstanding quality in the open field. The fruit are uniformly blocky, approximately 10 x 10 cm, and ripen to a uniformly blocky red that is suitable for pre-packing and bulk packaging. Fruit set is concentrated, resulting in high first pick yields. Momentum* has resistance against Bacterial spot race 1, 2 and 3 (Xcv 1.2.3.4) Cucumber mosaic virus, Tobacco mosaic virus and intermediate resistance to Phytopthora, Tobacco etch virus, Potato virus Y1.2. The yield is good throughout a long growth season.

SPECIAL VARIETAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Momentum* is a medium compact plant. We therefore suggest that plants are trellised for open field production.
  • As fruit set is concentrated, we suggest that flowers of the 1st and 2nd bottom splits are removed.
