Surprisingly tasty and incredibly healthy pepper - Kakadu variety: growing and breeding

Each vegetable grower has his own list of favorite and well-established not only seeds, but also producers. The choice of optimal varieties of vegetable crops is based on personal experience when a vegetable grower: sees a good, stable crop, notes high taste qualities, and observes resistance to diseases of various origins.

But, despite the list of tested varieties, every year gardeners love to grow new species. "On trial" most often seeds with attractive features are selected. Unusual may be the color and shape (or a combination of these parameters), the size of the fruit, interesting fresh taste, recommendations for optimal storage of vegetables. Kakadu F1 pepper stands out among other varieties due to its size and meatiness. The basic rules of cultivation, reviews of Kakadu F1 pepper, as well as the best methods of storage are presented in the review.

Description of the appearance of pepper Kakadu F1

The name of the variety was most likely due to the similarity of the shape of the fruit with the beak of the parrot of the same name. Ripe vegetable color: juicy, bright red. Breeders also bred yellow Kakadu, in many respects similar to the red one. Varieties can be grown together.

What do breeders promise?

The hybrid requires certain conditions for cultivation, so the pepper for open ground is better to choose a different selection.

The grade is intended for greenhouses (glazed, film, polycarbonate).

Vegetable Kakadu F1 refers to mid-season. Shoots friendly. The start of fruiting begins 130-135 days after germination. There are no data about the pick. Peppers grow quite large: about one and a half meters in height. Bushes are well leafy, spreading.

Fruits are cylindrical, the shape is elongated, curved. Length: up to 30 cm. Matured Kakadu F1 thick-walled (up to 8 mm). The stated size of the fruit can expect an excellent yield, when the weight of one vegetable can be up to half a kilo. The yield from each bush is high: 2500 - 3000 g. The characteristic “excellent” refers to the parameters “taste,” “juiciness,” and “aroma.” Purpose hybrid: lettuce and pickling. Also, Kakadu pepper is suitable for another storage method.

What do vegetable growers say about Kakadu sweet pepper?

Vegetable growers, who tested the seeds in their greenhouses, divided into two camps. The first give a positive assessment, others, on the contrary, were disappointed, not having received the result promised by the breeders.

Negative reviews about Kakadu pepper relate mainly to the size of the ripe vegetable: the gardeners didn’t wait for large fruits, although in terms of parameters, the bush grew, as stated. Some vegetable growers nevertheless grew large fruit in their plots, but there were very few of them.

After analyzing unsuccessful experiments, you can make the following recommendations for growing Kakadu:

  1. It is important to monitor the microclimate in the greenhouse, so that the strength of the plant goes to the development of the fruit, and not the development of the plant itself.
  2. To carry out timely feeding: hybrids, despite their origin, also need additional nutrients, especially if the soil itself is poor in them. Proper feeding is clearly visible on the fruits of the plant.
  3. Monitor seed quality. The minimum that can be done before buying seed, is to check the shelf life, storage conditions.

How to grow Kakadu?

The method of growing varieties Kakadu - seedling. Planting seeds in the soil is optimal at the end of February. The composition of additional feedings should not contain chlorine. Greenhouse conditions for growing plants can reduce the vegetative period. Planting pattern: 80 * 40 cm. In advance, trellis should be prepared for tying.

When forming three shoots, you should wait 2 weeks, then remove the weakest, and it is recommended to tie the remaining ones with the figure eight using a rope. It is important to remove underdeveloped ovaries in time. On sunny days, plants need to provide a microclimate: the temperature is not higher than 25-26 degrees, appropriate watering. On cloudy days, the optimum temperature is 20-22 degrees.

Additional information about pepper

After analyzing the description of pepper Kakadu from breeders, reviews of vegetable growers, the following conclusion is formed: it is possible for vegetable growers who are well acquainted with the conditions of plant cultivation and have a warm room for plants to buy seeds of this variety.

According to reviews about Kakadu F1, this variety is best used for preservation and cooking fresh dishes (for example, lecho). High taste qualities allow you to add pepper to vegetable slicing.

Sweet pepper in human nutrition and features of its freezing for the winter

If the task is to save the vegetable and figure out how to freeze peppers for the winter, the following tips will be helpful:

  • The storage form does not matter, i.e. the vegetable can be stored whole or cut into pieces (cubes, cubes, slices, etc.).
  • Frost should be quick. This applies to sliced ​​peppers, and the whole (for future stuffing).
  • It is important to cut the stem and get the seeds. Vegetables before freezing is recommended to be washed and dried.
  • Individual packages so that the pepper does not get the smell of other products.
  • Peppers can be frozen pre-stuffed, which will save vitamins and reduce the time of cooking.

Thawed peppers can be used in salads and side dishes, soups and sauces.

Vegetable can be attributed to dietary products. Information for those who wonder how many calories in pepper: 26-30 Kcal. Color does not matter. If you want to make a salad, where the pepper is, lighter, it is recommended to add to it a cucumber and carrot.

Vegetable itself contains many nutrients, but the benefits and harms of pepper are considered in each case. For a healthy person, eating vegetables will make it possible to replenish stocks of folic acid, fluorine, potassium, iron, and calcium. It should be neat with dishes containing pepper, hypertensive patients and people with coronary disease or heart rhythm disturbances. Eating a vegetable aggravates the situation of people with peptic ulcer, gastritis, and liver or kidney problems. The negative impact on health is explained by physicians with a large amount of essential oils.

General description of the plant

Planting seeds

The optimal time for planting seeds of this vegetable is the second half of March and the beginning of April. The soil mixture for pepper is prepared in advance by taking it from the beds in the garden plot, in which the cultures of the cepe family were not cultivated.

Pepper seeds are sown in wooden boxes, plastic or peat cups to a depth of 1.5–2 cm at a temperature of 25–28 ºС.

The first shoots of the vegetable appear on the 7-10 day, after which the seedlings are exposed to a bright and cool place.

Growing seedlings

When a young sprout of one or two true leaves appears in the young shoots, they are transplanted into separate containers with a third root removed. This technique is called a pick. It is produced in 2-3 weeks after the emergence of the plant shoots.

With the normal development of vegetable seedlings, fertilizing is not required. If the plants grow poorly, have lost color, then they make mineral complex fertilizers.

Not only south windows, but also east and west window sills are ideal for accommodating young pepper seedlings.

Plants are watered as the substrate dries with warm snow or settled tap water in the morning and afternoon.

Transplantation in open ground

In the southern areas, plant seedlings are planted in open ground in the second half of May and early June., and in the north - 1–2 weeks later.

For planting vegetables prefer elevated and sunny places. If garden soil is heavy and poor (for example, forest or sandy), then rotten manure or compost is brought into it - a bucket for 1.5–2 m² of land and wood ash - 0.5 l / m².

Dig up the soil and arrange the beds in which the peppers are planted in a two-row pattern. The distance between the bushes "Kakadu" in the row should be 40-50 cm, and between them - at least a meter. The high density of planting leads to the development of diseases and lower yields.

For feeding plants use both complex mineral and organic fertilizers.

For the first time, pepper is fed 10–14 days after planting in open ground.

Urea is used, but chicken dung gives the best results, which is diluted with water at a ratio of 1:15 and insist in a warm place until the end of fermentation. The resulting solution is shed contour pristvolnoy wells.

The second time feeding is made in the period of mass flowering and fruit set of the plant. Along with chicken manure use mullein.

In the latter case, cow dung is mixed with water in a ratio of 1:10 and poured into the furrows made between the rows of pepper.

It is useful to spray the leaves and flower buds of the plant with an infusion of ash - 1–2 cups per bucket of water.

The third dressing with liquid chicken droppings is timed to the beginning of fruiting of the hybrid variety “Kakadu”.

The frequency of irrigation - at least 1 time per week, and in the greenhouse - every 1-2 days.

After this procedure, the soil is loosened around the peppers, followed by mulching with turf ground or humus with the addition of wood ash.

Pruning shoots

For a good harvest, the Kakadu bush is formed at the seedling stage. When 5–6 true leaves appear, they pinch the upper point of growth, which leads to the development of lateral shoots, on which fruits mainly develop.

After planting peppers in the ground, the stepchildren forming in the interstitials must be cut off, leaving a stump of 2 cm in length.

Harvest

Crop harvested when the lower fruits of the "Kakadu" will get the maximum sizecharacteristic of this variety, however, will not reach biological ripeness.

Since the shoots of pepper are weak, the fruits of the plant are carefully removed along with the stem.

The collection is repeated every 4–5 days.

Seed breeding

To get vegetable seeds choose a well-growing bush., leaving on it no more than 2-3 fruits in the third bottom tier, which can withstand up to the fullest possible maturation.

The remaining fruits and ovaries are removed at least 1 time per week.

When the testes reach biological ripeness, they are removed and put in paper bags until completely dry. Then the fruit of the pepper is cut, and the seeds are packaged in paper bags, indicating the name of the variety and the year.

Medicinal

The plant is considered by nutritionists and doctors as a source of many beneficial vitamins:

  • provitamin A: an antioxidant that prevents aging of the body,
  • Vitamin C: strengthens the immune system with colds and SARS,
  • Vitamin B: necessary for the normal functioning of various organs and body systems, especially nervous and digestive, improves the condition of the skin and hair, affects the links of immunity,
  • Vitamin F: strengthens the walls of blood vessels, preventing hemorrhage,
  • folic acid: beneficial for fetal development.

In addition, sweet pepper contains a lot of iron and potassium, which is useful in anemia and heart disease. Vegetable is also rich in fiber, which improves the digestive tract, normalizes metabolism and reduces the risk of cancer.

In cosmetology, fresh juice is valued as a moisturizing tonic, and plant gruel is in the form of a face mask.

Vertex fruit rot

For prevention, Kakadu seeds before planting are treated with a 0.25% solution of copper sulfate or potassium permanganate. Calcium nitrate spraying helps.

To eliminate pests, the vegetable is sprayed with a water extract of ash or tobacco.

With the ineffectiveness of these measures apply rapidly decomposing insecticides: "Keltan" and "Karbofos."

The treatment is carried out in the morning until flowering, but not during the fruiting period.

Spider mite

From this scourge of pepper get rid of insecticidal drugs: "Fufanonom", "Karbofos", "Aktellik" and "Fosbecidom."

Choosing the variety "Kakadu", the gardener gets a hybrid, distinguished by high gastronomic qualities, resistance to diseases and pests, as well as simple farming techniques. The presence of a storehouse of vitamins and microelements in a plant helps to restore lost health and contributes to the prevention of many ailments.

Varietal features

Sweet Bulgarian pepper under the unusual and original name "Kakadu" is included in the State Register of the Russian Federation and is recommended for cultivation in the open ground or under film shelter in home gardens and garden farms. According to the description given by the originator of the hybrid form, this vegetable culture is characterized as forming powerful plants with an average level of foliage, of open type, with large dark green leaves.

Fruits have an elongated prism shape and are favorably distinguished by large size. The average mass of the marketable fruit in conditions of high agrotechnology and under favorable soil and climatic conditions very often reaches 300–400 g. Indicators of the total yield with the observance of the technology of cultivation can exceed 2.5−3 kg per plant.

The fruits of Kakadu peppers have an elongated prism shape and are favorably distinguished by their large size.

Fruits are characterized by the formation of a strong and relatively fleshy wall, the thickness of which is at least 0.7–0.8 cm. Tastes are very high. When grown in the northern regions of our country, this hybrid form is recommended for cultivation only in greenhouse conditions. On the territory of the southern regions, this hybrid has shown itself to be good when it is grown on the ridges of open ground, but in order to prolong the fruiting and speed up the harvest, the use of film shelters is allowed.

Along with the majority of highly productive and large-fruited varieties and hybrids, Bulgarian sweet pepper "Kakadu" needs cultivation in areas represented by fertile soils. Also, to ensure the plant uninterrupted power needed regular and high-quality feeding. Insufficient capacity of the bush and abundant harvest involve the use of supports and fixing the garter of the bush.

Landing rules

In central Russia, it is advisable to grow hybrids of sweet peppers through the seedling method. Sowing on seedlings should be carried out in late February or early March. Sweet pepper seeds are required to be embedded in the soil to a depth of no more than 1.5−2 cm.

Optimum for cultivation is a special soil for vegetable crops., but you can also use a self-made soil mixture, represented by humus, garden soil and sand mixed in a 2: 1: 1 ratio. Soil soil should be light and have sufficient friability. For every kilogram of soil mix, it is recommended to add a tablespoon of wood ash.

Sowing the seeds of pepper Kakadu seedlings should be carried out in late February or early March

Peppers do not tolerate replanting too well, therefore, it is best to dive pepper seedlings at the cotyledon stage, which allows to get strong and untransigent seedlings, the landing of which in the ground can be carried out at the end of May with the observance of the following rules for planting vegetables:

  • Sweet pepper places high demands on lighting and heat, so the site must be well heated by the sun’s rays,
  • for the cultivation of pepper used light and fertile soils with acidity indicators at the level of 6.0–7.0, and too acidic soils must be lime,
  • It is recommended to prepare the soil for the cultivation of sweet pepper about a year before planting and add 1 bucket of organic, 50-60 g of phosphate and the same amount of potash fertilizer per square meter to the precursor plant,
  • in the spring, when preparing the ridges (for shallow digging), it is recommended to add about 35–40 g of ammonium nitrate, which has a positive effect on the survival rate and adaptation of the plant in the first days after planting,
  • The standard scheme of planting grown seedlings in the soil is 40x80, but some gardeners use a more dense way of planting vegetables.

The planting of Kakadu pepper seedlings in the ground can be done at the end of May.

Planting pepper in the greenhouse can be carried out about two weeks earlier than on the ridges of open ground. It is best to plant seedlings on a cloudy day or after sunset. Immediately after planting, the soil should be slightly compacted, and then watered and, if necessary, pour the soil around the plant. Чтобы защитить неокрепшие молодые кусты перца от палящих солнечных лучей, можно использовать затенение специальными садовыми пленками или тентами.

Особенности ухода

The technology of growing peppers of the hybrid form is not too complicated and during the whole vegetative period of vegetable culture is based on the following measures:

  • watering pepper to the stage of active flowering should be done once a week by sprinkling from a watering can, using water heated in the sun,
  • in the phase of active fruit formation, the number of irrigations should be doubled and about 5-6 liters of water should be used to irrigate one square meter of planting area,
  • after watering and rains, it is required to carefully and shallowly loosen the soil between the rows, which will provide air access to the root system of plants,

High efficiency has mulching planting pepper rotted straw or hay

  • as a result of a lack of moisture, a vegetable crop can slow growth, as well as shed all flowers or ovaries,
  • high efficiency has a mulching planting pepper rotted straw or hay,
  • when grown on open soil ridges, sweet Bulgarian pepper should be fed twice with a solution based on bird droppings diluted with water in a standard ratio of 1:10,
  • positive effect on the growth and development of the culture has a foliar fertilizing with a solution based on nitrophoska,
  • with a preventive purpose and to minimize the risk of a fungal infection or a black leg, preferably about two times a month, irrigate the vegetable culture with a solution based on Fitosporin-M, Alirin or Trichodermin,
  • to increase the yield, you can attract insect pollinators by spraying the plants at the flowering stage with a solution of sugar and boric acid,
  • in order to obtain a high and high-quality crop, the formation of a bush is very important, which consists in removing all lateral shoots and leaves before the first fork of the plant.

It is necessary to harvest in time, without overloading the bushes with ripe fruits. When harvesting, the fruit should not be broken by hand, but carefully cut from the plant.

Reviews gardeners

Hybrid "Kakadu" perfectly proved itself in the conditions of home gardening, and, according to reviews of gardeners, many modern varieties of sweet Bulgarian pepper are inferior in terms of productivity of this hybrid form.

The high rating of domestic gardeners was obtained by the yellow-fruit hybrid “Kakadu” due to its high resistance to damage such as verticillary wilting, top rot and tobacco mosaic. A very fruitful hybrid forms juicy, sweet and fragrant fruits, so it is perfect for both fresh consumption and canning, as well as cooking soups and main dishes.

Features of growing

Before sowing, Kakadu pepper seeds purchased in a patented package do not need additional treatment, since Gavrish exposes his seeds and warms up, and poisons them from diseases and pests. Sowing should begin in mid-February.

During this period, there may not be enough light for the shoots, therefore additional lighting should be provided by fitolamps.

The soil for seedlings should be loose, nutritious and preferably treated with phytosporin or other drugs that can destroy infections in the soil. The second method of disinfection is the calcination of the soil followed by irrigation of the soil with humic fertilizers.

Seeds placed in boxes with prepared soil are moistened and maintained in this state, preventing it from drying out. The temperature should be at least 20 degrees. In such conditions, seedlings appear in a week. After that, the temperature drops to 18 degrees, but the lighting is increased to a maximum with the help of fitolamps. The longitude of the day should be at least 14 hours.

Watering of saplings is recommended daily in the morning by separated hot water. Top dressing, if the soil mixture was prepared using rotted humus and humate, is not needed. Otherwise, fertilization of organic mineral fertilizers for peppers or vegetable seedlings may be required.

Periodically, seedlings are recommended to rotate relative to the light source. This will help it develop in proportion to:

  1. When seedlings have 6 or more real leaves, they can be planted on open ground. Preliminary, it is recommended to harden them, remove them to fresh air or open a window.
  2. When seedlings have 6 or more real leaves, they can be planted outdoors.
  3. Planting time of Kakadu peppers in open ground or greenhouse depends on the climatic conditions of the region. In the southern regions, planting is carried out from mid to late May, in the suburbs and in the middle belt to mid-June.
  4. The planting scheme for this variety of pepper meets the standards for planting large-sized peppers. In the row between the plants it is recommended to leave a distance of about 60 cm, and between the rows - at least 1 meter. You need to land in cloudy weather or early in the morning or in the evening, when the brightness of the sun's rays will be minimal.
  5. Before placing the seedlings in the prepared wells, they must be generously shed with water. After planting the pepper, watering is repeated, and the soil surface is mulched with a thick layer of humus.

The Kakadu pepper variety is a demanding care plant that needs regular watering and feeding. Watering plants need 2-3 times a week, but very, very generous, literally to the state of "swamp". Water should be warm - from 18 degrees and above. Once every two weeks watering is combined with top dressing:

  • In the first month after disembarkation - adding chicken manure with the addition of ammonium nitrate.
  • When flowering begins, potassium and phosphorus salts are added to chicken droppings.
  • When setting fruits, the proportion of phosphorus and potassium increases, and ammonium nitrate is completely excluded from the composition of the nutritional mixture.

The Kakadu pepper variety is a demanding care plant that needs regular watering and feeding.

Diseases and pests

With the observance of agrotechnics, peppers are rarely affected by the disease, but in bad years the planting may suffer from phytophthora. To avoid this dangerous infection for peppers, it is recommended that when wet and cool weather occurs, treat the plants with a mixture of Bordeaux every 10 days. When signs of disease appear, peppers should be treated with special preparations:

No less dangerous disease for pepper is top rot. It is possible to get rid of it with the help of copper sulfate, which is used to process not only plants, but also the soil under them, as well as the inner surfaces of the greenhouse.

In the fight against pests such as aphid and spider mites, gardeners are helped by the preparations of Malathion and Azellika. In addition, a good effect is given by spraying ash ash.

Sweet pepper is the most valuable and healthy vegetable. It contains in its composition a large amount of vitamins and minerals necessary for the human body. Therefore, growing on your site Pepper Kakadu, you will have your own natural vitamins all year round.

Pepper Kakadu: description, characterization of the variety

Pepper Kakadu is a mid-season very productive hybrid, extremely sensitive to solar heat and picky in terms of growing conditions. The plant during active growth looks rather unusual because of its impressive height (about 1.5 m): it looks very much like a sprawling lush bush with a trunk devoid of leaves in its lower part.

Fruits grow exclusively selective, rather large: the weight of one is about 300-500 g, and the pepper can be as long as 30 cm in length. The shape of the fruit is elongated, resembling a bird's beak (from where the name is). The wall thickness is impressive: it can reach 1 cm and is characterized by incredible juiciness.

The plant begins to delight the first bright fruits quickly enough: 110-115 days after sowing the seeds, although in some cases, as gardeners note, pepper ripening can occur a couple of weeks earlier than the stated time.

Council If you don’t want to spend extra time on equipment for pepper bushes, you should give preference to this particular variety, because even during the period of active ripening of fruits (as we know, they have a rather impressive size and weight), the plant is able to withstand a similar “load "Independently.

The variety is very fond of heat and sunlight, so experts recommend growing it exclusively in warm climates, because the plant is very delicate in nature and is afraid of even short-term temperature drops.

The story of Kakadu pepper

According to information from the site of the agrofirm "Gavrish", Kakadu is a hybrid F1. It was developed by this company with the active participation of scientists from the Moscow Scientific Research Institute of Greenfield Vegetable Growing. It is already clear that pepper is created for growing in greenhouses. In 2003, the State Committee of the Russian Federation on variety testing received an application for registration of Kakadu in the unified register of plants. In 2004, this pepper received the status of a selection achievement, is listed in the State Register with a detailed description of its characteristics.

Do not ignore the inscription on the “Seeds from the author” packages, this means that you buy goods first-hand, fakes and re-grades are unlikely

Kakadu is recommended for cultivation in the North Caucasus, in the Central, Central Chernozem, Volga-Vyatka, Middle Volga, North and North-West regions, that is, throughout the European part of our country. It is there that he shows his best qualities, but he is not good at the Urals. Despite this, the hybrid is grown throughout Russia. Even Siberians are trying to get good yields in the open field. Hence, there are unflattering reviews about Kakadu, created for specific growing conditions.

Kakadu is a fruitful hybrid, but not for all regions.

Despite the fact that Kakadu doesn’t please all gardeners, for many years he has been the sales leader among the peppers. And it is not surprising, because such a colorful pepper wants to grow for everyone, and the love to overcome difficulties on the way to the cherished goal is inherent in every Russian.

In 2015, the company Gavrish registered Pepper Yellow Kakadu. It differs from its predecessor in the color and shape of the fruit.

Variety description

Kakadu bushes in the greenhouse grow to 1.5 meters, they require a garter for trellis. The first fruits reach technical ripeness in 130–135 days after germination. This is written in the State Register, and on the Gavrish website this period is shorter - 100–110 days. Who is right, you can find out in practice. Fruits attract with their unusual shape: they are trunk-like, curved, like a parrot's beak, with deep ribbing. In technical ripeness, dark green, in biological - bright red. The wall thickness is 6–8 mm, the taste is excellent, the pulp is aromatic.

Pepper Kakadu is interesting in bright colors and unusual shape.

The length of one pepper is 25–30 cm, the weight is 200 g, some specimens are 500 g. 8–10 kg can be collected from a square meter of a bed, and 2–3 kg from a single plant. It is easy to calculate that 10–15 fruits of the promised size can grow on one bush. So, in order not to be disappointed in this hybrid, it is necessary to carry out rationing of the ovaries. Otherwise there will be many fruits, but small ones with thin walls.

Video: Peppers picking for solar regions - two per cup

Care of the Kakadu planted in the greenhouse consists of several agricultural methods:

    Watering. Keep the soil constantly wet, cover it with mulch. Water once a week if the temperature is favorable (+ 23 ... +27 ° C), and in the heat of +30 ° C and higher - every 3-4 days. Watering should be abundant to soak the ground for the entire depth of the roots - 3-5 liters per adult bush.

Peppers are better than many crops respond to drip irrigation

Special fertilizers for peppers contain all the necessary macro and micronutrients.

The simplest scheme for the formation of two stems: before the fork, all stepchildren and flowers are removed, the right amount of fruits are left above, which are formed both on the main and lateral shoots

Harvesting and Crop Destination Kakadu

Peppers are recommended to be harvested in technical ripeness, then the yield will be higher. This is especially true for the first fruits, do not let them blush on the bush, they greatly inhibit the development of ovaries, located higher on the stem and appeared later. Hybrid Kakadu has a universal purpose. Peppers are tasty in both technical and biological ripeness, suitable for cooking cold and hot dishes. For stuffing, long curved fruits are too big and uncomfortable, they are best used chopped for soups, salads, appetizers, sauces, lecho. The easiest way to prepare Kakadu for the winter, saving almost all the vitamins - is to freeze.

Features grade

Most popular this variety received thanks to the impressive size of the fetus. "Kakadu" is considered the largest hybrid, the weight of fruits can reach 500 g, and in length they grow to 25-30 cm.

Another distinguishing feature is high yield varieties "Kakadu", one bush is able to bring 2.5-3 kg of fruit. The variety is heat-loving, therefore it can be grown in open ground only in a warm climate, in cooler areas it is recommended to grow it only in greenhouses.

Features agrotechnology growing

Pepper varieties "Kakadu", like most hybrids, does not require painstaking care, but demanding to external conditions. In order for the plant to actively grow and bear fruit, it is important to simply follow the basic rules of cultivation of this crop, which will be discussed further.

Harvesting

Long-awaited time for gardeners - harvesting. Peppers of the Kakadu variety are harvested when the fruits have reached their maximum sizes. Since it is not recommended to overload the pepper shrub due to weak shoots, the fruits do not wait until the fruits are fully ripe and peppers are still green. Pepper is cut from a bush with a knife along the stem, it is impossible to break off fruits from a branch, it can damage the bush. As a rule, the harvesting of Kakadu peppers is carried out once a week.

The benefits of sweet pepper can be talked about for a long time, its use is so varied.

Decorative

Actually, the decorative benefits of pepper is the same as that of most plants. Green sprawling bushes with large leaves and red and green fruits hanging in the midst of greenery will be no less pleasing to the eye than a beloved flower bed.

Sweet pepper "Kakadu" will be a great addition to summer salads and will perfectly retain its benefits when frozen for the winter. It can be cooked, stewed, baked, canned, it is valuable because the properties of the hybrid allow it to preserve the taste and color in any dish.

Sweet pepper "Kakadu" is very good for health, like his fellows. The pulp of this crispy vegetable contains the most important for humans vitamins: vitamin C, vitamin P, vitamins of group B, as well as organic acids. In particular, folic acid, useful for expectant mothers.

We reviewed the features of an unusual variety of pepper called "Kakadu" and made sure that many gardeners absolutely justifiably prefer this hybrid. Not requiring too complicated care, subject to the elementary rules of cultivation, it will provide an excellent harvest.
