We always plant a lot of sweet peppers, as we make preparations for the winter. And we plant it in the greenhouse to be sure with the harvest. After planting seeds for seedlings, the first shoots appeared after 6 days. The Butuz variety was a pleasant surprise. Without abundant large foliage, but with a bountiful harvest. The peppers are tasty, aromatic, large, weighing almost 200 g.

The Butuz variety was grown last year. The variety is picky. It is not necessary to form a bush. The harvest received an average of 5 kg per sq.m. My wife and I made a lot of blanks: lecho, different salads, frozen. And they ate fresh, for sure, since peppers are very useful for health. The taste is good, pleasant. I'll plant it again. And so that the earth does not disappear, in the aisles I put onions on the greenery.
