Capsicum 'Gilboa Orange'
Large, glossy, bright orange fruit that is more resistant to pests and disease than other varieties. The thick succululent flesh is deliciously sweet either cooked or raw.
The capsicum family have a greater demand for heat than tomatoes, so in cooler areas start your capsicums indoors so that they can be planted outside as advanced seedlings after the risk of frost has passed. Choose a warm, sunny spot and cultivate it deeply adding dolomite to supply the capsicums need for calcium and magnesium. Regular harvesting improves the productivity and vigour of the plant. Pick the fruit using secateurs to avoid damaging the plant and wear gloves when harvesting chillies!
