Optimal environment for set and development of sweet pepper fruit

, : Optimal environment for set and development of sweet pepper fruit. Acta Horticulturae (42): 55-62

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.
