Long Yellow Ringo Sweet Pepper Seeds
[70-80 days to yellow] This large sweet pepper grows up to 9 inches (20 cm) long and 2 inches (4 cm) wide. The tapered fruit turns a golden yellow when ripe. The flesh is thick, which combined with the size of the peppers makes them perfect for stuffing. A mid- to late-season producer, Ringo starts late but produces well into the autumn, often well after other varieties have stopped.
Because of their heavy fruit load, these Ringo peppers are best planted straight into the ground (i.e. not containers) and given strong support.
Delicious both raw and cooked. Use in salads, stuffed, stir-fried, or roasted.
Note: If you have access to grow lights and a heated propagator you can start sowing your plants in December and January to give you a head start on the year.
What is eating my Long Yellow Ringo peppers? Lots of pests love eating and laying their eggs on your sweet pepper plants. Both the larvae and adult insects will eat the fruits and foliage. Some insects that could be attacking your pepper plants are cutworms, ladybugs and wasps.
Can you grow Long Yellow Ringo in pots? Yes. You can certainly grow Long Yellow Ringo as long as you provide enough space for the roots to grow with soil and enough moisture.
How long does it take for Long Yellow Ringo to grow? Long Yellow Ringo takes about 80 days to reach maturity after the germination cycle. Sweet peppers need a warm environment to really thrive and may need watering up to 3 times a week in the warmest times of the year.
