Features of agricultural technology
Pepper variety "Red bull F1" is grown by seedling method. Seeds for seedlings are recommended to be sown in March. They should first be germinated by placing them in a humid environment (wet cloth, gauze) with a temperature of + 25- + 270C. Seeds hatch after 5-10 days, after which they are sown. The soil for growing seedlings should be loose, nutritious. To create it, you can mix garden soil with peat, humus, sawdust. If necessary, a ready-made soil composition can be purchased at a specialized store. Small plastic or peat pots can be used as containers for plant cultivation.
Important! Sawdust used to prepare fertile soil must be pretreated with urea.
After emergence, the peppers should be placed in a less warm environment with a temperature of + 22-230C. At the same time, the seedlings are demanding not only for temperature, but also for light conditions. Therefore, experienced gardeners "illuminate" young plants with fluorescent lamps. The optimal light period is 12 hours a day.
Watering young plants should be done regularly as the soil dries out. Top dressing is recommended every 2 weeks. As a fertilizer, you can use special complex compounds containing nitrogen and potassium.
It is possible to grow peppers of the "Red Bull" variety in open and protected ground. At the same time, the use of a greenhouse or a greenhouse allows you to accelerate the fruiting process and increase the yield of the crop. You can dive peppers into a greenhouse in early May; for open ground, the best time to plant plants is early June. The age of the seedlings at the time of picking should be 45-55 days.
The bushes of the Red Bull hybrid are vigorous, spreading. Their height reaches 1 m. Therefore, as soon as young plants have taken root, they must be formed by pinching the crown of the upper shoot. In the process of growth, small stepchildren are removed on the bush, leaving 5-6 main fruiting branches.
The soil around the perimeter of the trunk should be periodically weeded and loosened. In this case, it must be remembered that the roots of the peppers are located in the upper layer of the soil at a depth of 5 cm from the surface of the earth. This is why deep loosening, which can damage the roots, should be avoided. Mulching loose soil will help prevent the active growth of weeds and excessive drying out of the soil.
Mass ripening of peppers of the "Red Bull" variety begins in 110-125 days from the day of sowing the seed for seedlings. In this case, the first peppers can be tasted a few weeks earlier.
On each plant of the "Red Bull" variety during the period of active fruiting, from 20 to 30 large peppers can form at the same time, so the bush must be tied up. For this, you can use a trellis.

I "spied" the variety of peppers from a neighbor, and decided that I would certainly try to grow "Red Bulls" in my garden. Unfortunately, I do not have a greenhouse on the site, so the seedlings dived into open ground in early June. Plants have taken root without problems. I watered them regularly and fed them with infusion of cow dung (about once every 2-3 weeks). The bushes grew very tall and leafy, so the small shoots and lush foliage were periodically removed. The first crop was tried in mid-June. The peppers grow large, juicy, very tasty and aromatic. On each bush, 5-10 pieces ripened at the same time. The plant bore fruit until mid-September. According to rough estimates, I collected 3-4 kg of vegetables from each bush during the season. So, my experience of growing peppers "Red Bull" was successful. Next year I will definitely sow it.
