Klari Baby Cheese

Klari Baby Cheese - Organic

(65 days) Open-pollinated. Also known as Golden Delicious Apple Pepper. From Hungary, a Fedco introduction to the U.S. Wini Noyes says a good choice “for the pepper-challenged” to grow. Cheese peppers are flattened and filled with a soft sweet mild core. Shaped like 3" Rouge Vif d’Étampes pumpkins, the squat thick-walled 4 oz fruits were unlike anything we’d ever tried. I couldn’t stop eating these delicious summertime treats out of hand. Traditionally they are pickled whole after ripening from white to yellow to red. Named after the woman who has maintained this heirloom seed stock. 1997 Fedco introduction.

Additional Information

Peppers

Capsicum annuum

For all peppers, days to full-color maturity are from transplanting date.

~160 seeds/g. Capsicum comes from the Greek kapto which means ‘bite.’

Culture: Very tender, will not tolerate frost, dislike wind, will not set fruit in cold or extremely hot temperatures or in drought conditions. Start indoors in March or April. Set out in June. Black plastic highly recommended. Row cover improves fruit set in windy spots. Pick first green peppers when they reach full size to increase total yield significantly. Green peppers, though edible, are not ripe. Peppers ripen to red, yellow, orange, etc.

Minimum germination soil temperature 60°, optimal range 68-95°.

Diseases:

  • BLS: Bacterial Leaf Spot
  • CMV: Cucumber Mosaic Virus
  • TMV: Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Seed-saving tips: Use only the first fruits for seed; allow only 3–4 fruits per plant to grow and remove all others. Fewer fruits = larger seeds = greater seed viability. Later fruits often have germination rates of only 60%.
