Days to Maturity: 70 to 80
The name of this Italian heirloom translates as ?Horn of the Bull?, a tribute to this Sweet Peppers’ full, tapered shape.
A traditional favorite of Italy, Corno di Toro Giallo have a sweet, crisp, full-bodied flavour that makes them popular with Italian chefs, home gardeners and market growers.?When fully ripe the fruits are a gorgeous golden-yellow and grow 15 to 25cm (6 to 10in) long and 4 to 6cm (1? to 2?in) wide at the top. Suitable for cultivation in the greenhouse or outdoors, they mature 70 to 80 days from transplanting. They can be harvested while still green or can be left on the plant to ripen.
Sweet Pepper ‘Corno di Toro’ has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Cultivation:?When the seedlings have produced their first pair of true leaves and are about 5cm (2in) tall they can be transplanted to your garden.?The plants can be left to grow as cordons with supports. But the best method is to pinch out the growing tip and produce a smaller bushier plant that will only need a little staking and produce earlier fruits which should ripen easier. After the first flowers appear, feed every one or two weeks with a half-strength liquid tomato feed. You could also add some Seaweed extract to the water once a week.
