F1 Capsicum (Green Bell) is a hybrid variety of bell pepper known for its high yields, uniform fruits, and disease resistance. It’s a popular choice for both home gardeners and commercial growers. Here’s a closer look at its characteristics:
Appearance: The plants are vigorous and indeterminate, meaning they continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the season. The leaves are dark green and glossy, and the fruits are typically blocky, three- or four-lobed, and deep green in color.
Taste: Green bell peppers are less sweet than their red counterparts, but they have a fresh, slightly grassy flavor. They are a good source of vitamin C and other nutrients.
Maturity: F1 Capsicum is typically ready to harvest about 70-80 days after transplanting. The fruits will be green when mature, but they can be left on the vine to ripen to red for a sweeter flavor.

Growing F1 Capsicum is relatively easy, but there are a few key things to keep in mind:
Climate: Bell peppers prefer warm weather and plenty of sunshine. They are not frost-tolerant, so start seeds indoors in colder climates.
Soil: Choose well-drained soil with a pH of around 6.5-7.0. Amend the soil with compost or manure before planting.
Planting: Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Transplant seedlings to the garden when the soil temperature is warm (around 70°F). Space plants 18-24 inches apart.
Watering: Water regularly, especially during hot weather. Aim to keep the soil moist but not soggy.
Fertilizing: Fertilize bell peppers once a month with a balanced fertilizer.
Harvesting: Pick peppers when they are firm and the desired color (green or red). Use sharp scissors or a knife to cut the stem.
– Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
– Support the plants with cages or stakes as the fruits grow heavier.
– Watch out for pests and diseases, such as aphids, caterpillars, and fungal diseases.
With proper care, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of F1 Capsicum (Green Bell) peppers.
