the new Fresno chili pepper of Eminent Seeds

"Upright and uniform fruits are easier to harvest"

Eminent Seeds is marketing a new and improved version of the Fresno. "The chilli pepper has proven its worth at a number of tastings both in the Netherlands and abroad and leaves the competition well behind in several areas," says Niels Koolstra, sales manager with Eminent. "We are seeing growing numbers of pepper growers asking for the new Fresno for cultivation next year, including large-scale cultivation."

"The production and vigour of growth, in particular, of this new hybrid have seen huge improvements. In fact, we are observing in the collected data an increase of 25-30% in yield per square meter," he adds. "The plant also produces upright and uniform fruits which makes it easier to harvest. As you might expect from a Fresno, the taste is mildly spicy. And certainly worth mentioning: the new Fresno passes shelf life tests with ease."
