OUTSTANDING QUALITIES

  • IDEAL FOR OPEN FIELD PRODUCTION
  • LARGE BLOCKY FRUIT
  • STRONG ROBUST PLANT
  • GOOD DISEASE PACKAGE

Plato is a widely adapted blocky hybrid pepper for production of large green to red sweet peppers in the open field. The yields of fruit are of outstanding quality in the open field. The fruit is uniformly large and blocky (approx. 10 x 11 cm), show very little purpling and ripen to a uniform bright red colour that is suitable for pre-packing and bulk packaging. The strong robust plants are well adapted and protect the fruit well against sunscald, especially when trellised.  Fruit set is concentrated, resulting in high first pick yields. Plato has high resistance against Bacterial spot races 1, 2 and 3 (Xcv: 1 – 3), Potato Y (PVY) and Tobamo viruses races 0 (Tm: 0) and intermediate resistance against Tomato spotted wilt (TSWV).  The yield is good throughout a long growing season.

SPECIAL VARIETAL REQUIREMENTS

  • Plato is a strong robust plant. We, therefore, suggest that plants are trellised for open field production
  • As fruit set is concentrated, we suggest that flowers of the 1st and 2nd bottom splits are removed to allow the plant to maintain a good balance between leaf cover, fruit load and roots
  • If the fruit of the first set are picked at the mature green stage, the plant may be allowed to set fruit continuously
