Belgian pepper grower sells first green bell pepper of the season

This morning BelOrta sold the first green bell peppers of 2021. Buyer Legu-Fruits bought the first green peppers, supplied by producer Didier Algoet (Lentsche Heyde). These first green bell peppers also announce the arrival of the Belgian red and yellow bell peppers, although we will have to wait another ten days or so.

Acreage of bell pepper varieties increases
In 2020, green bell peppers accounted for a production of 2,000 tons at BelOrta, out of a total production of 20,000 tons of bell peppers. The acreage of green bell peppers remains the same, whereas the acreage of yellow and red bell peppers has increased by 7% and 5% respectively compared to last year.

This fruit vegetable is also a popular product amongst consumers and has occupied a prominent place in Western cuisine for decades. Because of their versatility, they can be used in a wide range of dishes: from salads to stir-fry dishes, from soups to oven meals.

Plenty of choice in BelOrta’s pepper assortment
In addition to the standard varieties of bell peppers (green, yellow and red), BelOrta also offers all kinds of specialities in the pepper range. These include, for example, the sweet pointed pepper and the baby pepper, ideal for travelling. The assortment also includes spicier varieties such as the Jalapeño, Piccantina and Habanero.
