SKU: 56780

3 x 9cm Potted Plant (EARLY)

Capsicum annum

From :- To be confirmed

Corno Di Torro translates as Bull's Horns in Italy, a reference to their shape. These tasty, tapering peppers grow up to 20cm (8") long and can be harvested either green or red. They have a sweet, crisp, full-bodied flavour that makes them popular among chefs - fresh in salads, fried, stuffed, roasted or just grilled on the BBQ.


Grafted vegetable plants offer us gardeners plants which have greater vigour and much more resistance to soil borne pests and diseases, such as nematodes, particularly useful if you grow in the greenhouse border soil each year, where crop rotation is somewhat limited! The grafting process brings together the best attributes of two different plants - a species rootstock and a hybrid variety. The hybrid variety is grafted to the species rootstock to produce plants which are strong and vigorous, which in turn, produce more fruits and heavier yields. Although traditionally greenhouse grown, we have found, over the last few years, that plants, if placed in a warm and sunny position, will also crop well outside too - even more reason to grow them!


Supplied as well-established plants in 9cm pots. Please note – do not remove the plastic grafting clip. It will fall off naturally as the plant grows.

The product is perfect. I generally get a good product from DT Brown. However since DT Brown started using this new app “Shop” to pay and order/reorder I have had nothing but problems and am very close to stop using DT Brown because of these issues.
