Optimal environment for set and development of sweet pepper fruit


Acta Horticulturae (42): 55-62
Optimal environment for set and development of sweet pepper fruit
Temperature was found to influence the fruit set as well as the shape and size of sweet pepper California Wonder. Low night temperatures (8-10 deg C) increased the percentage of fruit set and of parthenocarpic fruit development. High day-time temperatures (20-24 deg ) and low light intensity (30% shade), mainly at the early stage of flower development, promoted flower drop. This emphasizes the importance of ventilation in plastic tunnels.
