Sowing and planting

Best peppers

Optimal for this variety is seedling cultivation. It is believed that the seeds of Claudio f1 pepper should be sown in late February - March (depending on the region).

Soil plays a significant role. It must be sufficiently fertile and have neutral acidity. Before planting seedlings, the bed must be well dug up, weeds removed, and also liming it.

Before planting, seedlings must be hardened, and in the first 6-7 days after transplanting, it is necessary to keep it in the shade and monitor the moisture of the soil. The optimal distance for good plant growth is considered to be 30 x 30 (35 x 35) cm. The soil for planting should be well-heated and well moistened.

Care

Claudio f1 bell pepper needs regular care. Regardless of the place of cultivation of plants, in open soil or in greenhouses, the correct temperature regime must be observed. During the growth of plants should maintain a temperature of 22 °, and when ripening peppers - increase to 25-26 °.

At the same time, one should not forget about watering and the presence of good lighting. Proper irrigation is considered warm water in the evening. A lack of light can provoke the formation of strange-shaped fruits and significant extension of the stems.

The description of the variety indicates that plant nutrition consists of three stages. Before flowering, it is best to introduce rotted manure into the soil. Phosphoric fertilizers are used after the appearance of the ovaries, and potash fertilizers must be applied at the stage of ripening.

Plants form not only in 1, 2 and 3 stems, removing the remaining shoots. The first fork in the bush informs that it is necessary to remove the lower leaves and buds.

Possible diseases

Pepper has a good immunity to many common diseases. He is not afraid of either the tobacco mosaic virus, the potato virus, or the strength of peppers.

The variety is often affected by aphids, whiteflies and beetle larvae. To avoid this, it is necessary to treat the plants with special preparations.

Conclusion

We can say with confidence that the employees of Bayer (Nunhems) worked hard and created an excellent hybrid that does not lose its popularity even after a year.

Seeds of good germination, strong plants, good ovary and excellent taste of fruits - all this is typical for this variety. But you must remember that this hybrid is suitable for growing those who have enough time for complex care.
