OUTSTANDING QUALITIES

  • IDEAL FOR OPEN FIELD PRODUCTION
  • BRIGHT RED, BLOCKY FRUIT
  • EXCELLENT YIELD POTENTIAL
  • RESISTANCE AGAINST BACTERIAL LEAF SPOT AND TOMATO SPOTTED WILT VIRUS

Autry* is a widely adapted, hybrid blocky pepper for production in the open field. Autry* yields fruit of outstanding quality in the open field. The fruit is uniformly blocky, approximately 10 x 10 cm and ripen to a uniform bright red that is suitable for pre-packing and bulk packaging. Fruit set is concentrated, resulting in high first pick yields. Autry* has resistance against Bacterial spot race 1 – 10 (Xcv 1 – 10), Tobacco mosaic virus and intermediate resistance Tomato spotted wilt virus. The yield is good throughout a long growing season.

SPECIAL VARIETAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Autry*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 1stand 2nd bottom splits are removed
