‘Popti’ is a compact-growing sweet bell pepper from Pennard Plants which is very well branched and suitable for container growing in a cold greenhouse or outside in a sheltered southfacing location.
The fruit are mid-sized, being 5-6cm in length, weigh 70-80g and ripen from light green to bright red. The plants are resistant to Tobacco mosaic virus, Pepino mosaic virus, Tobacco etch virus, Potato virus Y and Phytophthora capsici.
The most important features of ‘Popti’ are its earliness to ripen in more northerly climates and its prolific yield for a relatively compact plant, producing more than 20 fruits in a season.
It is being launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition.
