THE EFFECT OF VARIETY, PLANT SPACING AND SOWING-DATE ON THE YIELD AND FRUIT DEVELOPMENT OF RED PEPPER IN SINGLE HARVEST

D. Palevitch
There are great demands on the international market for the many processed products of sweet pepper of the genus Capsicum. A few of the forms in which it is marketed are paprika, pimento, cayenne, dehydrated diced sweet peppers, as a flavoring agent and for improving the appearance of various food products.

In Israel there is a great demand for crops that can be processed during the summer and autumn seasons. Sweet pepper seems to be a potential crop for this purpose.

Expansion of the area given to pepper cultivation for the dehydration and deep-freezing industries depends mainly on the possibilities of reducing production costs. The development of a method that will enable single harvest of the pepper will be a significant contribution to this goal.
