US (NJ): 2019 Bell Pepper Variety Trial Report

The 2019 Bell Pepper Variety Trial Report for the evaluation of bell pepper cultivars with varying levels of resistance to bacterial leaf spot is now available on-line by clicking the link below. Bacterial leaf spot in bell (and non-bell) peppers causes significant problems each year. In recent years, a number of new bell pepper cultivars with resistance to ten races of the pathogen have become commercially-available; these cultivars are often referred to as having X10R resistance. Yield and fruit quality data from trials done at RAREC and at an on-farm site in Vineland, NJ last summer are included in the report.
