Capsicum annuum from Chinese space project.
in 1987 scientist Jiang Xingcun discovers that when seeds are sent to satellites in space for a while, there is a much greater chance of mutations, especially in terms of fruit size and yield, but also increased nutritional value. The aim of the project is to be able to keep up with the increasing demand for food in China.
About 4 cm wide and 25 cm long conically shaped peppers.
Ripening from green via orange hues into red.
Sweet pepper taste with mild heat. Best tasting Space Pepper.
Bush-shaped plants from around 90 cm - 3ft high that need good support to be able to bear the fruits.
