Its fruits will have thick walls that ripen a deep orange colour, this pepper plant is well adapted to grow in unheated greenhouses or outdoors from late spring.

Why not simply add them to your favourite recipe or serve up stuffed peppers filled with ground beef, rice, and mozzarella. Harvesting from the summer through to the autumn you’ll have plenty of time to experiment. Height 40-50cm (16-20"); spread 30-40cm (12-16").

What’s so good about grafted veg plants? 

Grafting onto specific rootstocks, of course, creates bigger, better, more disease-resistant plants with increased yield. Consequently, we believe, the extra vigour which the plant obtains will provide even better protection to late Blight attack, and the plants will grow away from any infection even more rapidly.

Grow in the greenhouse or outdoors, little or no heating required. With excellent resistance to soil-borne pest and diseases - No more ring culture or grow bags you simply plant straight in the soil.

Caring for your F1 Milena

On arrival water if necessary with tepid water. Leave them on a shaded windowsill or in a greenhouse for a few hours to settle before further handling, ensuring a frost-free non-draughty situation. Stand the plant in a warm, light, airy place such as a conservatory or greenhouse and allow to grow, ensuring that the compost is kept moist.

There is a possibility that your plant will include a grafting clip if it does, this is an integral part of the grafting process and that it should be left in place. As the plant grows it will naturally shrug off the clip.

On Receipt - Check the plants are moist and grow on in 10cm pots using a good quality potting compost. When planting, ensure that the graft is well above soil level to prevent the scion rooting into the soil which would reduce resistance to soil-borne diseases. Maintaining a temperature of 16-18ºC (60-65ºF) and provide a cane support.

Growing On - Once the roots fill the pots, transfer into 30cm (12″) pots or plant in the greenhouse border 60cm (2') apart. The plants are not suitable for growing in grow bags due to the strong root system. They are vigorous plants and as the fruit start to set start feeding twice a week using a liquid tomato fertiliser. On hot sunny days damp down the pathways to increase the humidity and misting the plants with water will aid fruit setting. The plants can be grown on a sunny patio once the danger of frost has passed in early June but the best results will be obtained when grown in the greenhouse.

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers, greenhouses. Prefers full sun.
