Tangerine Pimiento

Tangerine Pimiento OG

(85 days) Open-pollinated. In the words of one customer, these beautiful pimientos are a joy to harvest, standing out “just like little lights.” Sweet and juicy, great for eating fresh or roasting. Plants are modest in height and bushy, yet capable of ripening more than a dozen squat 2–3" round to slightly flattened 3–4 lobed thick-walled fruits in a good year. Fruits start yellow and blush to tangerine as they ripen. “They might have a small body, but they carry a big pizazz,” opines Anne Elder of Community Farm in Michigan. Seed in short supply; order early. Last offered in 2014.

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%.
