DOUBLE UP F1 HYBRID SWEET PEPPER

OUTSTANDING QUALITIES

  • IDEAL FOR OPEN FIELD PRODUCTION
  • BRIGHT RED, BLOCKY FRUIT
  • EXCELLENT YIELD POTENTIAL
  • INTERMEDIATE RESISTANCE AGAINST BACTERIAL LEAF SPOT

Double Up is a widely adapted, hybrid blocky pepper for production in the open field. Double Up yields fruit of outstanding quality in the open field. The fruit are uniformly blocky, approximately 10 x 10 cm, show very little purpling 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. Double Up has intermediate resistance against Bacterial spot race 1, 2 and 3 (Xcv 1.2.3). The yield is good throughout a long growth season.

SPECIAL VARIETAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Double Up 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
  • If fruit of the first set are picked at the mature green stage, the plant may be allowed to set fruit continuously
