'Sweet Red Balconi' is a tasty variety of capsicum pepper that will provide you with generous yields of deliciously sweet, glossy, bright red peppers. An Italian variety of pepper, that have a thick flesh and a mild sweet flavour, perfect for growing in UK gardens, they will be ready to harvest from July until October.
Best grown in full sun, in a sheltered position and in fertile soil, this will help produce the biggest, sweetest peppers that quickly change from green to red. 'Sweet Red Balconi' does well in a greenhouse or indoors in a bright, sunny spot and also makes an impressive container plant on a patio or balcony.
Tasty and packed with vitamins, red peppers are much higher in nutrients than green peppers, particularly vitamins A, C, K and B6 and are incredibly versatile in the kitchen. Perfect added raw to salads or roasted in the oven or added to skewers for barbequing where they have a wonderful, extra-sweet tangy taste if you let them burn a little. They freeze well too, so you can enjoy your home-grown peppers for months after the growing season has ended.
